The new Cavaliers training facility, Cleveland Clinic Courts, will open today in a grand opening ceremony at 2:30pm.
The $25 million, 50,000-square-foot facility has everything a professional basketball player could want, including a massive workout area and locker room, two full-length courts, underground parking and around-the-clock availability.
The Cavs, will house all their basketball training in the new building in Independence, just south of downtown Cleveland on Interstate 77.
â€œWeâ€™re very proud of it,â€ assistant general manager Chris Grant said. â€œI donâ€™t think weâ€™ve reinvented the wheel, but we really like the layout.â€
The workout room is 3,000 square feet, and thatâ€™s not counting a large training room, a laundry room and a doctorâ€™s office that has a direct link to the Cleveland Clinic.
â€œIt turned out great,â€ Ferry said. â€œWeâ€™re very happy with it.â€
The facility also contains a visiting locker room that can be used by opposing teams that are in town a day before a game, while the Cavsâ€™ massive locker room area almost defies description.
