so I hear the Lakes will have their own team. How many players can we assign to it and who is going to coach the triangle?

I cant seem to find any updated information since the announcement back in April. Have they even named the team yet?

try going to the nbdl website and looking at other team's rosters to get an idea of the numbers... its likely 12 players.

The team's name is going to be the D-fenders. And i don't think that we will have rights to all the players on the team, so any player on the team can be picked up by any of the other teams in the NBA.

I thought each NBA team could allocate a number of players from their 15 (thus, 3 players allocated). example: Von Wafer was there. No other NBA team could just pick him up.

Yea but those players had to be on the 15 man roster. We won't be able to the 15 players that are on the team. If we wanted a player from the team, we would have to sign them to a 10 day contract or full year, which would be the same for every other team in the league. I'm not 100% sure on this but i think that this is how it works.

Interesting... I thought the point of the Buss Family owning the NBDL team was to create their own farm team. I wonder if they will deliberately pick talent that they have the rights to that will play on their team?

They cannot scout the team the own?? That seems lame... Lets call the NBDL what it should be... a farm team system!
