The Anaheim Arsenal was a professional basketball team which played in NBA Development League from 2006-2009. They played their home games at the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, California.

Team owners included Tom and Louise Jones, Jeff Jones, as well as Gino Kwok, who is former president of the Summer Pro League in Long Beach, California, and Roy Englebrecht, who operates a school for aspiring broadcasters, fight promotors known as Fight Promoter University and is a boxing promoter.

The team was led by President Cliff Dochterman, and Head Coach Sam Vincent.

The Arsenal were the first professional basketball team to play in the Anaheim Convention Center since a 1992 Clippers NBA playoff game was played there because of Los Angeles riots of 1992.

On March 31, 2009, the D-League announced that the Arsenal would relocate to Springfield, Massachusetts for the 2009-10 season, where they became known as the Springfield Armor.[1][2] On April 15, 2014, the D-League announced that the Armor would relocate to Grand Rapids, Michigan for the 2014-15 season.[3]

In 3 years in Anaheim, the Arsenal never made the playoffs.
