Cavaliers Introduce Canton Charge

The Cleveland Cavaliers may not be playing basketball on the court, but they are still getting things done off of it, including the introduction of the team name, logo and colors for their NBA D-League team that will play in Canton. The Canton Charge will begin play this November against the defending NBADL Champion Iowa Energy.

"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."

"We’re very excited about this and we think Charge is not only a great name for the team, but it can also help reflect an attitude and mindset for our entire community. Canton is charging ahead in multiple ways, and we’re working hard to make our future better and better," said Canton Mayor Healy.

Fans can stay up-to-date on team news by following the team at: @CantonCharge on Twitter at and on Facebook at

Part of me likes the logo below more than the current Cavaliers logo!
