Milwaukee Bucks
New York Knicks

Utah Flash
Boston Celtics
Utah Jazz

This list came from d-league.com when you click on Fort Worth Flyers. Neither FTW or Arkansas are listed, so they must be sitting out a year. There was a typo under Dakota as Washington was not listed. Also, RGV was omitted from the list. I added the NBA teams who were not assigned and figured those must be sending players to RGV.

The Lakers have two teams to themselves?

I don't understand how the Lakers have 2 teams to themselves.

Well, I'm not a huge fan of the Washington Wizards or Memphis Grizzlies, but I'm glad that the Dakota Wizards get to be affiliated with their former coach at least.

It just made my day when I heard the Mad Ants would be affiliated with both the Pacers and the Pistons! (That way, they got the in-state team, and the team with history in Fort Wayne)

Here were my predictions, given that they were before Arkansas and Ft Worth were out, and that the Spurs were buying the Toros:

Here is my list:
Albuquerque Thunderbirds - Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers
(Loses Indiana to Ft Wayne)
Anaheim Arsenal - Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando Magic
(Loses Portland to Idaho)
Arkansas RimRockers - Memphis Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks
(Loses Miami to Hildalgo)
Austin Toros - Houston Rockets ,Boston Celtics
(Loses San Antonio to RGV)
Bakersfield Jam - Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings
(No Change)
Colorado 14ers - Denver Nuggets, New Jersey Nets
(Loses Toronto to Dakota)
Dakota Wizards - Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards,
(Loses Chicago to Iowa, gets Milwaukee)
Idaho Stampede - Seattle SuperSonics, Portland Trail Blazers
(Loses Utah to Utah, gets Portland)
Fort Worth Flyers - Dallas Mavericks, Philadelphia 76ers
(Loses Charlotte to Iowa)
Sioux Falls Skyforce - Minnesota Timberwolves, Toronto Raptors
(Loses Detroit to Ft Wayne, gets Toronto)
Tulsa 66ers - New Orleans Hornets, New York Knicks
(Loses Milwaukee to Dakota)
Los Angeles - Los Angeles Lakers,
(No Change)
New Teams,
Fort Wayne (IN) - Indiana Pacers , Detroit Pistons
Iowa - Chicago Bulls, Charlotte Bobcats
Rio Grande Valley (Hildago, TX) - San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat
Utah Flash - Utah Jazz


I originally had L.A. and Utah as the "1 affiliation" teams, because I had 16 teams in the league, and it was before Austin's news.

So, I got Ft. Wayne right, but, if they didn't affiliate them with the Pistons and Pacers, that would have been a big mistake, so, that was pretty easy.

I also got Idaho right, giving them the two NW teams.

I got Chicago with Iowa right.

I got RGV wrong primarily because of not knowing the Spurs/Toros situation.

The most surprising one to me was not getting Milwaukee aligned with one of the Dakota teams.

If you look at most of the affiliations, they have nothing to do with the location of the teams.

The Wizards get Washington and Memphis, which are no where near here. I understand why we got Memphis though.
