The Texas Legends, the D-League affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks, also announced new branding to their uniforms and court as part of a partnership with the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.

The team reportedly will also be training in Mexico.

Jerseys of WNBA teams already bear advertisements and NBA commissioner Adam Silver has said that he thinks ads on NBA jerseys are "inevitable."
