Las Vegas Aces TicketsCurrently known as the Las Vegas Aces, the basketball franchise began in Salt Lake City, Utah. The team moved in 2003 to San Antonio, Texas, and was known as the San Antonio Stars. After playing for several years, the Stars made it to the WNBA finals in 2008 but lost to Detroit. The WNBA and NBA Board of Governors approved the relocation of the San Antonio Stars before the 2018 season and after relocating to Las Vegas and becoming the city's first professional basketball team, the Stars underwent a name change, now known as the Las Vegas Aces. With the 2020 regular season beginning in May, head coach Bill Laimbeer will continue in his second year to build on the momentum of the Las Vegas Aces 2019 season, in which the team reached the conference finals but ultimately lost to the Washington Mystics.
