It is no less than a breaking news in whole of the states, especially to NBA locales. With expansion from 8 teams in 2001, then to 15 in 2005 and further to 19in 2015-16 season; 2016 is the year, calling in the talent and retaining it. This is an amazing opportunity for the NBA stars.
The Collective Bargaining Agreement ensures more benefit for some players in the form money and more control of selected prospects for the parent NBA clubs
Together there is a chance of several major issues coming up as the league and the players’ jack up the talks on the new CBA. This could come to an end by the end of 2016-17. This contract covering minor and major leagues is one of the flaring topic for D-league. Because, D-Leagues’ executives, and the basketball operations for minor league is run by the NBA, the D-league and the NBA is a heavy duo on CBA.
NBAs growth pretty much beneficial for the players.
Moving for 15 roasters to 17, this would mean at least 60 new jobs for players. Furthermore, the D-league will have an enriching talent pool with it, when the expansion from 19 to 22 happens in 2016-17 or even more. This would eventually give more prospects to the NBA to grow economically.
No wonder the discussions and plan are still early as the financial elements are still unsettled. The insiders reveals the dual contract minor league portion is of $100,000 per season, give or take 25,000. Well, this is good news for the dual contract players while the rest’s salaries may top at $25,000. This seems financially good for the dual contract players who have got the chance to make a minimum of $100,000.
If the player of the dual contract is given a promotion this would put him in a pro-rated minimum of NBA money. Or, when demoted, there is still a support of $100,000 as the least, while the other minors are making $25,000, $19,000 or $13,000.
Malcolm Turner, D-League president seems hopeful when he said, that it seems to make sense for their league. He also said, that he doesn’t want to go ahead than where they are standing at the moment in terms of conversations while, he is seems eager to take the next step to be taken for sure. He also said that he is looking forward for better talent and to grow the league faster.
NBA growth seems very beneficial. In the 2016-17 season 12 of 22 teams will be under NBA franchise, while the basketball operation will be handled by its parent clubs, and separate ownership groups will handle the business side.
