Beginning with the 2017–18 National Basketball Association season, the Memphis Grizzlies would operate their development team in the NBA G League, called the Memphis Hustle, in the arena. The announcement came after the Grizzlies decided to end their agreement with the Iowa Energy. This would be the second time a basketball team has played a season at the Landers Center.
On January 4, 2012, Memphis-based Landers Auto Group purchased the naming rights. The name was changed to the Landers Center.
