Sorting Out the Team Affiliations

Well, it's been an exciting couple of days, hasn't it?  (Say yes.)  Houston announced that they're taking control of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Springfield team has a name, and all that on top of the announcement that the Dallas Mavericks effectively bought the Colorado 14ers franchise.  After all that, you must be asking, "so...who is affiliated with whom?"  I compliment you on your grammar, and tell you not to worry, for I have the answer to that.

After the jump, a list of the new NBA/D-League affiliations and notes on any changes to them that I could see/remember.  For Scott's thoughts, check the Bismarck Tribune.

Albuquerque Thunderbirds - Dallas Mavericks, New Orleans Hornets (added Hornets, apparently won't be shutting down)

Austin Toros - San Antonio Spurs (no change)

Bakersfield Jam - Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers (added Clippers, lost Orlando)
