The Iowa Energy are a team of the NBA Development League. They play their home games at the Wells Fargo Arena at Iowa Events Centermarker. The Energy were the first minor-league basketball team to play in Des Moinesmarker for a full season since the Des Moines Dragons.

Former Brighton Bears coach Nick Nurse is the team's head coach.

History

The team initially held a "Name the Team" contest, where the choices were Corncobs, Maize, River Rats, Scarecrows, and Thoroughbreds.[443278] However, the team later announced that, because of general fan dislike, none of these names would be the team name. The team name, Iowa Energy, and the logo were announced on June 29, 2007.[443279]

On November 23, they won their first-ever game, a 101-99 win at Dakota. They defeated Albuquerque, 101-98, in their inaugural home game in front of a league-record 8,842 fans.[443280]

On March 11, 2008 the Iowa Energy made D-League history when they made the first ever three-team trade that sent Rio Grande Valley Vipers Adam Haluska to Iowa, Iowa Energy guard Mike Efevberha was sent to the Anaheim Arsenal, and Arsenal forward Ivan Johnson was sent to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

For their second season, they have dropped the Miami Heat as their affiliate, replacing them with the Phoenix Suns.[443281]
