Default Re: Should NBA Draft have three rounds? Should bad teams get an extra first round pick?

I don't think many read the article or thought about this much.

Its not just adding a third round, and another set of players to not make the league.

It's about helping restore balance while still allowing successful teams to draft. Further to that it seems it would be part a total draft/development overhaul.

So to just say 'no undrafted players make it' is kinda ignorant to the whole point.

Another thing is, and I'm sure the league is aware of it, is that if they can develop the Dleague and strengthen its affiliation with league teams and keep the players in the states for 2-3 seasons they will be good enough. Because most undrafted players head overseas and within 2 seasons they are NBA players but have missed their chance.
