David Mayo of M-Live posted an article this morning saying that the Pistons will be bringing a D-League team to Grand Rapids through a locally-owned partnership. Mayo's article states that the Springfield (MA) Armor will be purchased by a group from the Grand Rapids area and moved to the city's DeltaPlex Arena. The team's business operations will be managed by the local group, and player operations will be managed by the Pistons' front office. This is an exciting announcement for anybody in the Grand Rapids area who has missed minor league basketball since the CBA folded. It's also encouraging from a standpoint that the Pistons will have a close affiliate to develop young players who aren't guaranteed to see playing time in Detroit. Stay tuned for more details on this as it develops.
