NBA May Expand D-League Roster from 15 to 17


The conversation is gaining momentum from Maine to California, not to mention in important NBA locales. It has become that much of a priority in the D-League. “It could be a very big deal,” said an executive with one NBA team who has also paid close attention to the minor league for several years.

NBA big. Global big. The NBA likes the idea of expanding rosters from the current limit of 15 to as many as 17 as part of the next Collective Bargaining Agreement with the additional spots designated for two-way contracts that will mean more money for some players and more control of select prospects for the parent clubs.
