Rose Garden? What Rose Garden? It's the Moda Center now

Thats where Moda derives from and we feel its a direct fit [with the Blazers]. Moda Health emerged as the Blazers naming-rights partner after a lengthy search process that involved contact with 317 companies. McGowan brought on Premier Partnerships, a naming-rights advisory firm, to sift through potential sponsors that ranged fromelectronics and technology firms, to financial services companies, to renewable energy companies. Although the Blazers have undertaken three separate sets of layoffs in less than a year since McGowan took over as president, the new revenue stream from this agreement will not be used to hire personnel. Rather, McGowan will look to make capital improvements to the Moda Center, the Blazers practice facility and the area directly surrounding the Moda Center known as the Rose Quarter. Those upgrades could include improved wireless network access, a redesigned fountain near the buildings main entrance, new exterior lighting and more locally focused food and beverage options in the arena. Longer-term plans include upgrades to the arenas luxury suites and club levels.
