The Las Vegas Silvers were briefly a CBA team for a few months in 1982 and 1983. They were an expansion franchise for the 1982-83 season in the desert with a slick blue and silver logo. Unfortunately, the team wasn't successful with a 11-21 record and had trouble paying bills. They would be moved to Albuquerque, NM, in mid-season to become the Albuquerque Silvers. The franchise would last 2 1/2 years in New Mexico before folding after the 1984-85 season.
