Update for 2020-2021 Season:
The NBA G League announced on January 8, 2021 that 18 teams, including 17 NBA G League teams and G League Ignite, will take to the court in February at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. The top eight teams will advance to a single-elimination playoff. This includes the Iowa Wolves.
“We worked closely with our teams, the Basketball Players Union, and public health experts to develop a structure that allows our teams to gather at a single site and safely play,” said NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim. “We are thrilled to get back to basketball and to fulfill our mission as a critical resource for the NBA in developing players, coaches, referees, athletic trainers and front-office staff.”
The Iowa Wolves were officially announced as the new branding starting with the 2017-18 season. The Iowa Wolves joined the NBA G-League as the Iowa Energy, an expansion team in 2007. The G-League is the official minor league system of the NBA. The Energy were affiliated with the Memphis Grizzlies from 2014 – 2017 and changed to the Iowa Wolves after being purchased by the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves. The Iowa Wolves play their home games at Wells Fargo Arena.
One of the most decorated teams in league history, the Energy captured four division titles (2009, 2010, 2011 and 2014) and the NBA D-League Championship in 2011. Committed to preparing and developing coaches and players for the NBA, 20 Energy players and three coaches received Call-Ups from NBA teams.
