NBA G League tips off 17th season on Nov. 3 - Aug 25, 2017

The newly renamed NBA G League, the NBA's official minor league, will tip off the 2017-18 season on Friday, Nov. 3. A record 26 teams will compete in the NBA G League's 17th season, including four expansion clubs owned by NBA franchises: the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario (LA Clippers), Erie BayHawks (Atlanta Hawks), Memphis Hustle (Memphis Grizzlies) and Wisconsin Herd (Milwaukee Bucks). Each team will play a 50-game schedule that concludes in March 2018. The 2017-18 season also features several relocated or rebranded teams. The Lakeland Magic (Orlando Magic), Iowa Wolves (Minnesota Timberwolves) and South Bay Lakers (Los Angeles Lakers) will play in new cities or with new names. In addition, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants (Indiana Pacers) and Reno Bighorns (Sacramento Kings) unveiled new identities to align with their parent club's color schemes. As part of the schedule, stretches where teams play four games in five nights have been eliminated and the number of back-to-back games have been reduced to an all-time low. This marks the first NBA G League season with no four-in-fives. Back-to-backs have been cut to an average of 7.0 per team, a 19 percent reduction from 8.6 per team last season. The new-look Erie BayHawks begin their tenure under Atlanta ownership when they visit the Grand Rapids Drive (Detroit Pistons) on opening night at 7 p.m. ET. The five-game schedule on the first day of the season culminates with the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario making their NBA G League debut at home against the Santa Cruz Warriors (Golden State Warriors) at 10 p.m. ET. The Memphis Hustle opens its first NBA G League season by hosting the Sioux Falls Skyforce (Miami Heat) on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET, while the Wisconsin Herd debuts at the Rio Grande Valley Vipers (Houston Rockets) on Monday, Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. ET. Raptors 905 (Toronto Raptors), the 2016-17 NBA G League champion, begins defense of its title by visiting Grand Rapids Drive on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. ET. The reigning champion's first home game will be against the Long Island Nets (Brooklyn Nets) on Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. ET. Each NBA G League team will play 24 home games and 24 road games and an additional two games at the annual NBA G League Showcase from Jan. 10-13 in Mississauga, Ontario. Every team will face conference opponents three or four times and play an additional 10 games against non-conference opponents. The regular season ends on Saturday, March 24, and the 2018 NBA G League postseason will begin no earlier than Tuesday, March 27. To accommodate the NBA G League's continued growth, the two conferences have been realigned and divided into three divisions each for the 2017-18 season:
The Eastern Conference
Atlantic Division: Long Island Nets (Brooklyn Nets), Maine Red Claws (Boston Celtics), Raptors 905 (Toronto Raptors), Westchester Knicks (New York Knicks)
Central Division: Canton Charge (Cleveland Cavaliers), Fort Wayne Mad Ants (Indiana Pacers), Grand Rapids Drive (Detroit Pistons), Wisconsin Herd (Milwaukee Bucks), Windy City Bulls (Chicago Bulls)
Southeast Division: Delaware 87ers (Philadelphia 76ers), Erie BayHawks (Atlanta Hawks), Greensboro Swarm (Charlotte Hornets), Lakeland Magic (Orlando Magic)
The Western Conference
Midwest Division: Iowa Wolves (Minnesota Timberwolves), Oklahoma City Blue (Oklahoma City Thunder), Memphis Hustle (Memphis Grizzlies), Sioux Falls Skyforce (Miami Heat)
Southwest Division: Austin Spurs (San Antonio Spurs), Rio Grande Valley Vipers (Houston Rockets), Salt Lake City Stars (Utah Jazz), Texas Legends (Dallas Mavericks)
Pacific Division: Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario (L.A. Clippers), Northern Arizona Suns (Phoenix Suns), Reno Bighorns (Sacramento Kings), Santa Cruz Warriors (Golden State Warriors), South Bay Lakers (Los Angeles Lakers)
The 2017-18 NBA G League broadcast schedule will be furnished at a later date.
