Come the 2017-2018 season, the NBA's Development League or D-League will be known as the G-League.

G is for Gatorade.

The name change comes as the NBA and the sports drink company have agreed to a new sponsorship.

The NBA also revealed the league's new logo which also features the Gatorade logo.


This comes as NBA teams prepare to feature advertisers' logos on their jerseys next season.
