The Texas Legends are the National Basketball Association’s G League affiliate team of the Dallas Mavericks.
In 2009, Dallas Mavericks executive, Donnie Nelson, purchased the Colorado 14ers franchise and moved the team to Frisco. Later that year, women’s basketball pioneer, Nancy Lieberman, was introduced as the Legends’ head coach, becoming the first woman to lead a men’s professional basketball team. Earning the name of Texas Legends, the team began play in the 2010–11 season out of the Comerica Center.
For the 2016-2017 season, the Texas Legends led the league in attendance, set a franchise record for NBA call-ups, doubled the number of community appearances and was the first G League (formerly D-League) team to be featured on a National ESPN broadcast special.
