I'm sick of people calling Hartford too small of a market (NOT trying to provoke, so don't bother flaming me) while cities such as Charlotte (twice in the NBA), Sacramento, and Portland get teams. Even orlando is just a few billion bigger than Hartford when you do not include New Haven. Add in New London county, which is one of the richest per capita in the country and other parts of CT and you realize that CT is not a minor league market.
