GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – The Grand Rapids D-League has unveiled its team name.
The NBA Development League team will be known as the “Grand Rapids Drive”. The team’s president unveiled the name on Daybreak Tuesday morning.
In May, the team announced four name choices, including Drive, Chairmen, Horsepower and Blue Racers. President Steve Jbara said Drive easily won the popular vote.
The next step for the team is to choose a mascot, which will happen in the next two months.
