The Fort Worth Flyers were a franchise of the NBA Development League minor league basketball based in Fort Worth, Texas. 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 an expansion franchise. 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, Nevada, and of the D-League placing another team in Fort Worth, citing their close proximity to the Dallas Mavericks.[1] However, this probably won't happen now that the Texas Legends, based in Frisco, are the sole affiliate for the Dallas Mavericks.

Logo design

A blue capital "F" reminiscent of a biplane over a basketball. The logo is also slightly similar to an alternate logo of the Philadelphia Flyers. The only number currently retired (#11) is that of Jose Juan Barea for his back-to-back 40 point games.
