The Detroit Pistons will launch a D-League team in Grand Rapids with the Springfield Armor relocating.

Dennis Mannion, president of the Detroit Pistons, and Dan Reed, president of the NBA D-League, will be on hand to explain a “hybrid partnership with Detroit Pistons,” according to a press release sent out Thursday, April 10.

The team was purchased by an undisclosed local ownership group, and has received league approval, sources said.

“Hybrid” partnership, one of two ownership options followed by the NBA D-League, allows local ownership to control day-to-day and business operations while the parent club controls basketball operations. The other is exclusive ownership by the parent NBA club.
