TWC SportsNet Adds D-Fenders to Schedule

Time Warner Cable SportsNet, the new home of the Los Angeles Lakers, is adding 12 Los Angeles D-Fenders to the schedule starting this weekend.

The telecasts of the Lakers’ minor league team (though it would be hard to pick out the real minor league team based on the way Kobe and Co. have been playing) will be called by veteran broadcaster Steve Quis and former three-time NBA champion A.C. Green.

“We are thrilled to partner with Time Warner Cable SportsNet this season,” Joey Buss, president/CEO of the D-Fenders, said in a statement.  “This is an opportunity for our fans, Lakers fans and basketball fans to develop a connection with top D-Fenders prospects as well as Lakers assignment players, both of which are instrumental to the future of the Lakers and NBA.”
