The Cleveland Cavaliers' new NBA Development League team will 'Charge" into their inagural season in Canton.
The D-League team will be named the Canton Charge according to the Cavaliers website. The announcement was made Thursday afternoon during a news conference at the Canton Memorial Civic Center, where the team will play their home games.
“The Canton Charge franchise is powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they are truly energized by the Greater Canton community,” said Cavaliers President Len Komoroski.
“Today, we are proud to unveil a team identity that is very much the result of a collaborative process between our organization and the great fans here.”
Quite a bit of research was done to see what the team's new identity would be as thousands of Cavs fans submitted input in naming the team via the team’s official website, social media outlets, and fan on the street interviews.
The Charge begins their inaugural season at the November 25th at 7:30 p.m. against the defending NBA D-League Champion Iowa Energy.
