The Illawarra Hawks will simply be known as ‘The Hawks’ under a new ownership structure at the NBL club.
The change comes in a bid to expand the Hawks’ footprint across Canberra and regional New South Wales.
The new ownership group includes the former general manager of Ben Simmons’ Philadelphia 76ers.
Bryan Colangelo says he’s delighted to get involved with the club.
“This presented an opportunity to join with a group of people that I’m familiar with – some that I’ve just gotten to know, but it’s an exciting time,” he says.
The NBL says Wollongong is still intended to to be primary base for the club.
