The team said in a news release that the new ownership group of Joe and Clara Tsai and new home at Barclays Center in Brooklyn helped lead to the logo change.
“While this new logo pays homage to our franchise history and the history of New York City, it also nods to our future and modernizes the team’s overall look,” Liberty chief operating officer Keia Clarke said in a statement. “This new chapter of Liberty basketball in Brooklyn will begin with the rollout of a new visual that energizes and excites Liberty loyalists.”
