With three top 10 NBA Draft picks in the last two seasons – the most by any program in that span – NBA G League Ignite is moving to Henderson, Nevada. Ignite will begin playing its home games at The Dollar Loan Center in 2022-23, NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim announced today.
NBA G League Ignite is a team dedicated to developing top young prospects in preparation for the NBA Draft. The roster includes elite players who are eligible for the NBA Draft as well as NBA and NBA G League veterans who serve as mentors to the team’s young talent.
The Dollar Loan Center is also home to the American Hockey League affiliate of the Vegas Golden Knights – the Henderson Silver Knights – and the Indoor Football League’s Vegas Knight Hawks.
“With avid sports fans in the Las Vegas area who have quickly embraced their hockey, football and WNBA teams, we can’t wait for NBA G League Ignite to showcase its future NBA stars and exciting brand of basketball,” Abdur-Rahim said.
After training in Walnut Creek, Calif. and playing in Las Vegas in 2021-22, Ignite will relocate to Henderson full-time.
“NBA G League Ignite is another elite professional sports organization that we are thrilled to bring to the Henderson community and The Dollar Loan Center,” said Foley Entertainment Group CEO Kerry Bubolz. “These future NBA stars will get a first-class home and we know our fans will enjoy seeing such talented players in an intimate, family-friendly arena.”
