The Detroit Falcons were a professional basketball team based in Detroit. It played in the 1946–47 season in Basketball Association of America, a predecessor organization to the National Basketball Association. The team folded after one season, leaving the Motor City without a professional basketball team until a decade later, when the Fort Wayne Pistons moved there.


The Falcons played only in the inaugural season of the BAA and finished 4th in the Western Division with a 20–40 record, 18½ games out of first place. Centerforward Stan Miasek was the team's star, scoring 895 points (14.9 points per game) and making the BAA's First Team that year.
