Business As Usual For D-League During Lockout

July 4, 2011, 10:30 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Business As Usual For D-League During Lockout
SIOUX FALLS, SD - The NBA Development League may include the acronym NBA in their title, but when it comes to a lockout the league is all on their own.

"It's very much business as usual. We just had our national try-out camp 2 weeks ago where we had 263 prospective players in Louisville," NBA Development League President Dan Reed said.

With the NBA lockout in it's early stages, the D-League is looking ahead to its 11th season. If the lockout happens to cost the NBA games though, player assignments like the ones the Skyforce saw last season with Dexter Pittman and Jonny Flynn won't be allowed.

"If the lockout is in place players who played last year in the NBA or were drafted will not be eligible to play," Reed.

But Reed is confident that those players eligible to join the D-League will do so, rather than look to go overseas.

"We've established that we're the most highly scouted league in the world and that we've done a great job advancing our players careeers with now 23% of players in the NBA coming from the D-League," Reed said.
So even if the lockout drags on longer than expected, Reed says to feel free to plan ahead for Skyforce games this fall.

"Buy your Skyforce tickets and plan on coming out to the games because we plan to have a successful 11th season," Reed says.
