The under-construction UCLA Health Training Center will be the new home of the Lakers and Development League’s D-Fenders. It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017. The Lakers will own their new building rather than lease space, as they do now from the NHL’s LA Kings.
Lakers COO Tim Harris said that it is not a sponsorship. It is a true partnership with UCLA. Not only the team will have their new practice facility, UCLA Health will also serve as the exclusive in-game health provider.
“The new building is three times the size of the one we’re in now. It’s got state-of-the-art everything,” coach Luke Walton said.
Miss Jeanie Buss, and the mayor of El Segundo was also at the event.
