Los Angeles Lakers fans will be ecstatic to hear the NBA team is moving to the Las Vegas Strip from Los Angeles.
The NBA team moved to Los Angeles in the 1950s after being relocated to the city from Memphis.
The Lakers moved to the Strip in 2019.
The team announced plans to move to Las Vegas this month.
The announcement comes just one day after the Lakers won the 2017 NBA championship.
The franchise’s new stadium, the Las Colman, will be named after basketball legend Magic Johnson.
The new Las Colmen will seat more than 70,000 fans and will be the third-largest stadium in the league behind the Staples Center in Los Angeles and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the new venue will be a “brand-new venue” with seating for more than 80,000.
A new team logo will be introduced on Sept. 8, 2020, when the NBA franchise officially opens the stadium.
The stadium will be open to the public for the first time on Oct. 1, 2020.
The league will also host a special NBA draft on Nov. 13, 2020 in Los Angles, where the first picks in the first round will be determined.
The 2020 NBA draft is the last draft in Los Vegas, which will be held in 2019 on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
The Las Colmans are expected to be the Lakers’ home for the next several years.
The 2019 NBA season began on Feb. 7, 2020 and ends on Oct., 1, 2021.
