Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

According to the Raptors Twitter account

Quote:
Ujiri says #Raptors have received board approval to purchase D-League team. Where/when still to be finalized. http://raptors.com/live
This will give Masai control over developmental usage for Bebe, Bruno and whomever we draft this year. I like this news

Re: Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

I've actually never heard of a D-League purchase being publicly announced like this. Then again I guess I've never really been plugged in too closely with the comings and goings of the D-League.

Re: Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

Neither have I.....

Does any other NBA organization have ownership over a D League team?

Re: Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

And on another note, I kind of wish the NBA would treat the D League the same way the NHL treated their "D League" (AHL). Where each NBA team has total control of a D League team where the can Develop players their way in a system that runs along with the NBA team.

That was a major downfall for Bruno this season, twice he was sent to the D League and both times he was barely used. And obviously not in a way that helps his growth with the Raptors. If anyhting it may have hurt his confidence, not being able get any minutes in the D League nevermind the NBA.

I really think the NBA switching over to this model will be more benficial to the NBA and the D League a like. For the D League, fans of the NBA team will follow their own D League more closely knowing that this team can be developing players for their future.

Re: Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

I think Masai might be the first one to use a D league team correctly. It should be used to develop your young guys, nothing else.

Re: Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

Every team should have a D-League team, there is absolutely no reason not to. This will eventually be the norm, and catching on slow is never a good thing.

Re: Board Approval to Purchase a D-League Team

This really is excellent news for the franchise.

Bruno, Bebe and DeAndre Daniels will all be playing 30mpg against NBA veterans and a good level of competition.

I don't think they realise how many views these games will get, the Raptors nation is going to be all over any Bruno game.

I'm in Brampton so I can definitely go to D League games in Mississauga.

Exciting news.

Google tells me I can be court-side sharing a beer with you in 11 hours and 15 minutes. I may have to get a season ticket.
