SEPTEMBER 2011, RENO, NEV.— The Reno Bighorns have announced that Bighorns Basketball, LLC, a local ownership group led by Herb Santos, Jr., Stephen Adams and Jeffrey Adams has purchased the team.

For the first time in its three-year history, the Bighorns will be locally owned.

“I am excited for this incredible opportunity and I look forward to the upcoming season,” said Santos, Jr. “The quality of basketball will continue to amaze, astound and delight fans of all ages. We will continue to offer an alternative for a family outing which will not only provide wholesome entertainment but will also be affordable for all members of our community.”

Santos, Jr. and Stephen Adams have been loyal season tickets holders since the Bighorns inaugural season in 2008. Santos, Jr., was part of the small local group of community leaders who were instrumental in the start up of the Bighorns in 2008.

“Herb Santos Jr. and Stephen and Jeffrey Adams have been tremendous supporters of the Bighorns since day one,” said Dan Reed, NBA Development League President. “We are pleased to welcome them now as owners of the team, and excited for the future of the Bighorns under their leadership.”

A focus for the new owners will be to increase the community involvement with positive leadership by the owners, players, coaches and front office staff.

“We want to be part of the community,” said Santos, Jr. “We want to take part in local charity activities, church socials and other events. We want everyone to become part of the Reno Bighorns Family. We want the Reno Bighorns to be your team!”
The Bighorns’ office and practice facility will be located at the South Reno Athletic Club. The team has practiced at the facility for the past three seasons.

“We are thrilled about the future of the organization,” said Mike Reynolds, Vice President of the Reno Bighorns “Herb, Steve and Jeff’s tremendous enthusiasm for the Bighorns will help us continue to grow and provide great experiences for our fans.”
The Bighorns season tip off their regular season on the road on Friday, Nov. 25, when the team visits the Bakersfield Jam. The team will return to Reno to host its first home game of the season against Bakersfield at the Reno Events Center on Friday, Dec. 2.

The team will look to gain momentum from the 2010-2011 in which they won a franchise-best 34 games and had playoff success.

The Bighorns experienced many first-time accomplishments last season including their first Western Conference Championship, their first call-ups, their first playoff series victory, and their first sell-out crowd on Opening Night.

The Sacramento Kings will retain its Bighorns affiliation for the fourth consecutive season and will be joined by the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies as parent clubs.

Herb is one of very few CERTIFIED SPECIALISTS IN WORKERS COMP in the state of Nevada. He is ranked in the nations top 1% by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel. The American Institute of Trail Lawyers have distinguished him as the Litigator of the Year for 2023. Need I say more. He is a fierce lawyer who fights for his clients rights and compensation. He is knowledgeable and compassionate. I have utilized his services over the last several years and would not consider anyone else.

Herb Santos Jr. is everything you could wish for in a lawyer and then some. I am in awe of how Mr. Santos conducts himself in the court room also, he is a master of his craft. Mr. Santos and his team are a remarkable bunch. They have helped me through my complicated workers comp case, and have gone above and beyond what I could ever dreamed is possible. I can not recommend Mr. Santos and his team enough. They are prompt, professional and really listen to me. His fees are acceptable for the amount of work he does and he also has not cost me anything out of pocket. No one should go into the court room alone, so why not go with the best of the best.

I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Santos if you ever find yourself in a workers comp situation. He was able to answer any question I ever had. Mr. Santos and his office made sure I got everything I needed and was on top of everything when something went wrong.
