Default Lakers NBDL Team - the D-Fenders

Los Angeles D-Fenders Announce Team Name, Unveil Logo

EL SEGUNDO, CA, July 26, 2007 – The Los Angeles Lakers have become the first NBA team in history to own an NBA Development League team. The Lakers wanted to give their fans an opportunity to name the team with an online naming contest and fans selected the name LOS ANGELES D-FENDERS.

The Los Angeles D-FENDERS will play their home games at STAPLES Center the same arena as their big brother team the Los Angeles Lakers. The D-Fenders games will take place either pre or post Lakers home games. “The D-League has been instrumental in helping improve the quality of play in the NBA and we are thrilled to be the first NBA franchise to own a team in the Development League,” said Jeanie Buss, Executive Vice President Of Business Operations for the Los Angeles Lakers. “I am so pleased that our devoted fans participated in the online naming contest and voted for the winning name the Los Angeles D-FENDERS.”

The Los Angeles D-FENDERS official website: Check back soon for further updates.

The general manager and head coach for the team will be announced later this summer.
