History

The Leñadores were founded in 1979 by Duranguense businessmen who wanted to bring professional basketball to the Mexican state of Durango. Initially, the nickname Alacranes was proposed, due to scorpions being the most notable animal from Durango, nevertheless, ultimately, after a poll, the name Leñadores was chosen.

The team played in the Circuito Mexicano de Básquetbol, the top level of Mexican basketball in those years, from its establishment in 1979 till 1998, winning four titles in 1979, 1981, 1984 and 1994.

In 2002, Leñadores joined Liga Nacional de Baloncesto Profesional, where they played for only three seasons. The team was disbanded after the 2004 season. Previously, the franchise intended to withdraw after the 2003 season, but it stayed for one more season after securing several sponsorship agreements.

In 2018, it was announced that Leñadores would return to professional basketball after 13 years of absence.

The team has always played at the Auditorio del Pueblo as their home arena.
