ESPN's Darren Rovell reports that former NBA player Rick Fox, most recently with the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring in 2004, has bought the team. They will be renamed Echo Fox.

The Daily Dot reported earlier this month that Gravity Gaming had been sold to a mystery buyer for $1 million. The team failed to qualify for this year's World Championship event, losing to Cloud9 in Regional play. The makeup of its roster remains unclear with the new buyer now in place.
