Carmelo Anthony Thinks NBA Should Rebrand D-League


Carmelo Anthony thinks the NBA should “rebrand” the D-League and invest more in “developing our own players” in the next collective bargaining agreement.

“If I had it my way, I’d rebrand the whole D-League,” Anthony told ESPN. “I’d rebrand it so it’s not seen as a punishment.”

As vice president of the National Basketball Players Association, Anthony said he has been pushing for a major investment in and overhaul of the D-League to create more jobs for young players and strengthen the NBA’s player development system.
