The Utah Flash is a team of the NBA Development League that began playing in 2007. They play their home games at the McKay Events Center on the campus of Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. The Utah Flash is the affiliate team for the Utah Jazz and the Atlanta Hawks.

The team name was chosen by a name-the-team contest, with the choices Dash, Flash, Dynos, and Heroes. The Utah Flash name was announced on April 17.

On May 24, it was announced that Utah Jazz regional scout Brad Jones would be the team's inaugural head coach.[1]

Dec. 8, 2009. Owner, Brandt Andersen, hoaxed a sold out crowd that expected Michael Jordan to play in a charity exhibition at halftime. A Jordan lookalike instead was introduced to face former Utah Jazz guard Bryon Russell in a promotional fiasco. Fans were outraged, and many booed and left the game.[2]
