From the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority:

The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority will host the 10th Annual NBA Development League Showcase Presented by Samsung Galaxy at the Reno Events Center. The 2014 Showcase, which will feature all 17 NBA D-League teams, will run from January 5-9, 2014.
"We're thrilled to be returning to Reno for this year's NBA D-League Showcase Presented by Samsung Galaxy," said Chris Alpert, NBA D-League Vice President of Basketball Operations and Player Personnel. "The Bighorns and the RSCVA have done an incredible job over the last two seasons providing the NBA D-League with an excellent venue for our players to demonstrate their skills in front of NBA Scouts, and we're looking forward to another successful week at the Reno Events Center."
Conceived prior to the 2004-05 season, the NBA D-League Showcase Presented by Samsung Galaxy provides an opportunity for NBA D-League players and coaches to perform in front of key NBA decision makers over five consecutive days at one location. The City of Reno will play host to basketball operations executives from all 30 NBA teams who will attend games scouting top young NBA prospects.
"The return of the NBA Development League Showcase Presented by Samsung Galaxy to Reno, for a record three years in a row, establishes our community as a NBA destination," said Bighorns Owner Herb Santos, Jr. "Our resorts, our restaurants, our hospitality, our world class ski resorts, and everything else that Reno Tahoe has to offer will be showcased once again globally by the NBA.  When it comes to high caliber, professional basketball, Reno is on the map!"
Every game during the NBA D-League Showcase Presented by Samsung Galaxy will be broadcast on either CBS Sports Network, NBA TV or on the NBA's D-League website. Games broadcast on national television are indicated in the schedule below.
