Reno, Nev.- The Reno Bighorns, NBA D-League affiliate of the Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks, will host open tryouts in Reno for the 2011-2012 Reno Bighorns team.

This will be the final open tryout for the D-League’s upcoming 2011-2012 season.

“It is very exciting to get a chance to see the local talent in these different areas,” said Mokeski. “The D-League has a history of giving players a chance to play professional basketball and I am excited to be a part of the process.”
