I hadn't heard about the Truist name, sounds weak. So I guess it will be the Truist Center now. I guess the same for the Braves stadium (currently SunTrust Park).
Back to the current BB&T Center, that building has been around for 21 years and has had more names:
National Car Rental Center (1998-2002)
Office Depot Center (2002-2005)
BankAtlantic Center (2005-2012)
BB&T Center (2012-??)
BB&T acquired BankAtlantic in the fall of 2012, so in that case it wasn't the naming rights expiring, but the actual bank.
Of course, that pales next to the local football stadium:
Joe Robbie Stadium
Pro Player Park
Pro Player Stadium
Land Shark Stadium
Sun Life Stadium
Hard Rock Stadium
South Flori-DUH for you.
