Austin Spurs TicketsThe Austin Spurs are the official NBA G League affiliate of the San Antonio Spurs. The roster is comprised of players under direct contract with the San Antonio Spurs who can be called up throughout the season as well as various NBA free agents. Founded in 2001 as the Columbus Riverdragons, the franchise made the 2005 NBA D-League Finals but lost to the Asheville Altitude. After relocating to Austin and changing its name to the Toros, the franchise was purchased by the San Antonio Spurs ownership group in 2007, ushering in a new era as a direct affiliate. Under their leadership, the Toros won the 2012 finals over Los Angeles in three games. After changing their name again to the Spurs, the team went on a spectacular run. It captured three division titles in four years, which culminated in the 2018 championship with a 2-0 series win over the Raptors 905. Nick Johnson won the series MVP. Austin Spurs tickets are available for purchase at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
