GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Drive announced Wednesday its new name: Grand Rapids Gold.

The name change and new logo comes as the team enters its first season as the NBA G League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets.

“This new affiliation and corresponding name change is one of the biggest moves we’ve made as a franchise,” Steve Jbara, president of the Grand Rapids Gold, said in a release.

Grand Rapids Gold recently announced its first set of home games for the 2021 to 2022 season. The full 50-game schedule will be announced later this summer.
