A New Era
In May 2014 the NBL announced that the Melbourne Tigers had decided to change their name to Melbourne United to start a new era of Melbourne basketball. It was later released that the ownership that bought the Tigers in 2012 had planned to change the team and the name for 18 months before deciding to go ahead with the move. Melbourne United own all rights to the Melbourne Tigers history.
Chris Goulding announced his plans to play overseas and thus ending his tenure with Melbourne. United then went on to sign former Tigers player and Boomers forward David Barlow as well as Daryl Corletto. The same week United released Adam Ballinger from his contract, allowing him to sign with the Wollongong Hawks.
