Just this afternoon the Warriors reached an agreement with Oracle Corporation on the naming rights of The Oakland Arena. The Warriors home will now be called "The Oracle" for the next 10 years.

Thanks to JudBooshlur who broke the news first with the diary "The Oakland Arena to be renamed...". Make sure to vote in his poll.

Oracle and the Golden State Warriors today announced a naming rights agreement in which the Arena in Oakland will be renamed the Oracle. The 10-year agreement also includes additional exclusive team sponsorship elements with the National Basketball Association club. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

"We welcome the opportunity to align ourselves with the Oracle brand," said Warriors President Robert Rowell. "The Warriors are rapidly progressing toward our goal of becoming a championship organization, and partnering with Oracle is another sign of that progress. They are undoubtedly the best in the world at what they do. We look forward to tapping into them as a valuable business resource."

What do you think of the name? What else would you have named it?
