will remain in control of business operations in Reno as part of the agreement announced Thursday. The Kings and Bighorns have been tied together since Reno's inaugural season in 2008-09. The partnership is the seventh of its kind between NBA and D-League teams. The move will allow the Kings to groom players and coaches - and oversee roster moves - in an affiliation similar to minor league teams in baseball. New affiliates for both teams will be announced later this summer.
