The Long Island Nets, the Nets’ D-League affiliate starting next season, will debut their new uniform and logo Thursday, March 24, in a press conference before the Nets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Nets general manager Sean Marks will be on hand, as will CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment Brett Yormark and NBA Development League President Malcolm Turner.

The Nets haven’t had an affiliation with a D-League team since the 2013-14 season, when the Springfield Armor were bought by the Detroit Pistons and moved to Grand Rapids. Marks worked briefly in San Antonio as the general manager of the Austin Toros, the Spurs D-League team, and has stressed the importance of having a D-League affiliation.

The Long Island Nets will play at Barclays Center for the 2016-17 season, and are scheduled to move back to a renovated Nassau Coliseum for 2017-2018.
