The Springfield Armor will open their third season --and their first as a Nets hybrid-- in Springfield at 7 p.m. Friday vs. the Maine Red Claws, the Celtics affiliate. The Nets assumed control of basketball operations in May, promoting Milton Lee to GM and hiring Bob MacKinnon and Chris Carawell as coaches.
The game will be played at the MassMutual Center in Springfield and be available on NBA Futurecast and ESPN 1450. Among the players who the Armor brass have high hopes for are returning veterans L.D. Williams and JamesOn Curry, and rookie Jonathan Thomas, all swingmen. The Armor will be undersized until the return of 6'10" Chris Taft, who was waived but can return to Springfield once he recovers from a knee injury.
