2014-2015 Delaware 87ers Schedule

The Delaware 87ers made their debut in the NBADL, the NBA's developmental league, in 2013 and quickly began to show the locals in Newark, Delaware what the D-League is all about. Though we all know the NBA is great too, one of the reasons it stays that way is because of the mega-talented players who you can find working on their game in the developmental league, where the future stars begin to take their game to the next level. That definitely is the focus of the 87ers, who have shown in a short period of time that the D-League is a place where you can find some unbelievable basketball action from one game to the next.

Once the season gets rolling in the winter, the 87ers get to take on some of the other prominent teams from around the league, giving them plenty of challenges as the 87ers look to make their mark. Playing in the East Division, the 87ers had some great moments in their first season in the league, though they will be looking to take the next step forward with their franchise. An affiliate of the Philadelphia 76ers, the 87ers have another roster loaded with players who can do a little bit of everything on the hardwood, making their home court of Bob Carpenter Center the place to be all season long.

Delaware 87ers History

Previous to 2013, this franchise existed as the Utah Flash from 2004 to 2011. As the Flash, the franchise was affiliated with the Utah Jazz, but in 2011 the Philadelphia 76ers bought the team to become their affiliate and moved the team to Delaware, with the first season in their new home happening in 2013-2014. A word play on the famous name of the 76ers, which celebrates the Declaration of Independence signing, the 87ers points to the equally as important ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. With the 87ers heading into an exciting new era of basketball that is sure to have some major thrills from one year to the next, Bob Carpenter Center will have some amazing games as this team settles in with its growing fan base.
