The Fort Worth Flyers is the name of a now defunct team of the NBA Development League minor league basketball expansion team based in Fort Worth, Texasmarker. They began play in the 2005-06 season. The decision was made by the NBADL to not operate this team for the 2007-08 season.

Franchise history

The team began play in 2005-06 as the merger of the defunct Greenville Groove and Mobile Revelers. They were the D-League's regular season champions, finishing 28-20. However, they lost the Championship game to the Albuquerque Thunderbirds by a score of 119-108.

The following season, they finished in third place in the Eastern Division with a 29-21 record, losing the Eastern Division semifinal game to the Sioux Falls Skyforce 128-105.

The team didn't return to Fort Worth for 2007-08, as they were not able to make a profit. There is some talk of the Flyers moving to Reno, Nevadamarker, and of the D-League placing another team in Fort Worth, citing their close proximity to the Dallas Mavericks. [168898]

Logo design
