The Reno Bighorns are an National Basketball Association (NBA) Development League team based in Reno, Nevada. The Bighorns began play in the 2008–09 season, and play their home games at the Reno Events Center. Their namesake is the desert bighorn sheep, which is the state animal of Nevada. Their NBA parent club is the Sacramento Kings, a hybrid affiliation beginning with the 2013–14 season.
Two previous Reno basketball teams were named the Bighorns; one from the defunct Western Basketball Association and one from the Continental Basketball Association which played for the 1982–83 season. The team colors of green, tan, and blue are designed to be an allusion to nearby Lake Tahoe. The Bighorns are currently only affiliated with the Sacramento Kings, which has been with the team since its inception in 2008. Reno has previously affiliated with the New York Knicks (2008–09), Orlando Magic (2009–10), Golden State Warriors (2010–11), Atlanta Hawks (2011–12), Memphis Grizzlies (2011–13), and the Utah Jazz (2012–13).
During the 2014–15 season the Bighorns led the NBA D-League in scoring and also in call-ups to the NBA with seven. The performance of the team and players like Brady Heslip and Sim Bhullar garnered media attention in not only the Reno area  but also on a national scale with national outlets like The Dan Patrick Show and CBS' The Late Late Show  putting a spotlight on the team. Head coach David Arseneault Jr. and his offense, called "The System" were profiled by The Guardian in late February 2015 in an article that put a spotlight on the coach's innovative game plan that he helped to develop with his father at Grinnell College.
