Mad Ants could grab more affiliations

The Mad Ants, who currently are the minor-league affiliate of Indiana, Detroit, Charlotte and Milwaukee, could pick up one or two more NBA affiliations, confirmed Fort Wayne president Jeff Potter.

The opportunity has arisen, at least in part, because of the Sacramento Kings' new single affiliation with Reno of the D-League.

That leaves the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz without D-League teams.

The Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers have also gotten single affiliations this offseason with, respectively, Sioux Falls and Delaware.

"There are a few possible situations we are looking at," Potter said.
