National Developmental Basketball League. Its kinda like a farm system the way baseball has but players dont get called up like that. Only like 5 or 6 players got signed to teams from the NBDL last yearOriginally posted by the_truth
I don't even know what it stands for.
Yeah but not really they had some players in there that were former player in the NBA. Some that didnt make it yet and vice-versa. I watched a couple of games and they were aiightOriginally posted by the_truth
So its kinda like my idea about NBA2 right? Those players are kinda like amatures right?
So would I! Hopefully, the NBA head honchos are thinking like that, too.Originally posted by KC
The NBDL is a pretty good minor league system, but not necessarily the same type as MLB. I would like to see the commish let teams send 2nd round picks down to the NBDL if they feel like there isn't room on the roster or the player needs more work...
Yes, because some teams have affiliations with the D-League teams. Riley has said that sometime this year they're going to send Daequan Cook to the D-League fora 20-game stint.HB said:Honestly are teams really paying attention to this league, AT ALL?
Actually, every team has an affiliation with D-League teams. The only unfortunate thing is that at the moment, because there are still fewer D-league teams than NBA teams, the D-League teams "share" NBA affiliations. So the Sioux Falls team receives players allocated from Minnesota and Charlotte; the Colorado team gets players from Denver, NJ and Toronto.UD40 said:Yes, because some teams have affiliations with the D-League teams.

This farm team would have the same offense so that when a player is called up he would know the system. This would help teams hold on to a second round pick a little longer and let him develop(like the Lakers cutting Cory Hightower after 1 training camp and spending two future 2nd rounders on him). I think the draft would also have to be extended at least 1 round. I also think this would stop the league wide stashing of players on the injured list with fake injuries.
