[quote=""mbond""]IMO, the D-league players should be making a little more since the NBA has gotten all this money from TV deals and has explosive amounts of money to hand out to everyone. NBA role players scoring 6 or 7 points a game are walking around with 12-15 million/year. (Which is normally the...

[quote=""Minor League Mania""]I agree with you about pay. The new deal is better but still not there. This is just another reason I dont think the NBA could support a sub league right now. One thing to consider is that a two way player will kind of be viewed and paid like a member of a MLB 40 man ro...

I'm not referring to the average D-League player. Many veterans sign partially guaranteed contracts to attend NBA training camps in October, these guarantees range from 20,000 for young players to 250,000 for well regarded veterans. If these players are waived in October, then decide to play in the ...

With the G League, the NBA pays the player, say 24,000 -30,000 over 20 weeks. However, an NBA team will pay that player 20,000 - 250,000 to attend training camp in Oct. Therefore, G-League players make between 24,000 - 280,000. That kind of money (100K +) will attract top notch talent; as well as re...

Actually, I believe the High School issue could be solved by creating an instructional league. The NBA could use MBL's Gulf Coast League as a blue print, all the teams play in one city without charging fans admission to games. Rather than forcing kids fresh out of high school to compete against vete...

Hmm

G League rosters are restricted to a max. of 12 players. In prior years, D-League teams training cap rosters consisted of 14-15 players: returning players (4-6), draftees (4-5), players waived from the parent teams training camp (3-4), and Try-Outs (1-2). With the addition of two way contracts, G-Le...

Interesting

Ward 8 is far, far away from the historic Afro-american culturally hub of U Street; however, this arena may become the top venue for minority acts that either can't fill the Verizon center, or have a fan base that is too large for Constitution Hall. This is a great deal for city government. Tax reve...
