The Rockers, who were founded in 1997, were the sister team of the NBA clubs Cleveland Cavaliers. The team owner was Gordon Gund, who also owned the Cavaliers. In September 2003, Gund explained that his company wanted to retire from the WNBA business. Since no new owner could be found for the team, the Cleveland Rockers had to suspend their gaming operations.
The Rockers got their team name in honor of Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
