LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The NBA says the G League Ignite is concluding its final season.

According to an official media release, G League President Shareed Abdur-Rahim announced the conclusion Thursday.

The NBA G League Ignite launched in April 2020 and is a broadcast partner with FOX5 Las Vegas.

“Four years ago, we started Ignite to fill a void in the basketball landscape, and I’m proud of the contributions we were able to make to that ecosystem,” said Abdur-Rahim.  “With the changing environment across youth and collegiate basketball, now is the right time to take this step.  I want to extend my sincere gratitude to general manager Anthony McClish, head coach Jason Hart and their staff and to each player who wore an Ignite jersey.  As ever, the G League’s commitment to developing top NBA talent and helping players achieve their NBA dreams is unwavering.”

This comes after a decision amid the “changing basketball landscape, including the NCAA’s Name, Image and Likeness policy, the advent of collectives and the transfer portal.”
