In 2008 the NBA contacted HWS Group about a possible expansion of their Development League into New England. The Springfield Armor debuted in the fall of 2009, and less than three seasons later was at the top of the league, competing in the 2012 playoffs after winning the Eastern Division Championship. In 2011, HWS Group signed a deal with the recently relocated Brooklyn Nets to become the Armor’s exclusive affiliate. The team’s tenure in Springfield came to an end with a move to Grand Rapids, Michigan at the conclusion of the 2014 season.
