Bobcats are so dumb that they haven't been the Bobcats for several years!

But yes, I also think that is one of the worst contracts in sports. Not quite as bad as Joe Mauer's, though!

Maybe MU has something planned for Wade's farewell?

Did he really think going home and doing pickup games was going to be beneficial in the offseason? Is there even D1 talentaround his home?

Really have to wonder about his agency representation. His agent needs to get on the ball with advice.

DJO DNP tonight in the T Wolves first exhibition versus Golden State. Don't think he will play much in the exhibitions, but hopefully he ends up on their Iowa Wolves G League affiliate.

DJO with 4 minutes tonight in the Timberwolves loss to the Bucks

4 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds plus a steal and a TO in garbage time. Pretty efficient, tied for 2nd on the team in assists.

Built on momentum from practice.
I think DJO will eventually be called up from the G League at some point this year.

As expected DJO was cut by Minnesota. Looks like he is headed to their Iowa Wolves G League affiliate.

The Pistons were missing two starters on opening night, one to a minor injury and one to flu, and Casey played 10 players by early in the second quarter.    Henry DNP-CD'd.

He'll have a great career in Europe.

Henry Ellenson is a great example of why the NBA needs a legitimate minor league.

They have one.  He's been playing there quite a bit.

In my opinion,  the G-League is a haphazardly thrown together mess.  You have a hodge podge free agents playing for themselves,  2 way contract players,  and end of the bench players shuffling back and forth between there and the Association.

There is a lack of structure with the vast majority of teams.  The G-League is essentially a glorified pickup game, with very little player development.   Some NBA teams are starting to figure it out but the vast majority have no idea how to develop prospects.

I think the G-League of about five years ago is how you have described it.  With pretty much every team owning their own affiliate, the development of two-way contracts and the ability to send players down and back whenever they want, I think it has become much better as a developmental league.

Without a doubt better but till they can hold on to the majority of borderline NBA prospects and the old Gleaguers have aged out it's still going to be far away from what they want.

The G-League has improved some but still has a long way to go.  Problems:

1. Only 27 G-League teams exist but there are 30 NBA teams.   It's the 18th season of the G-League and it still lacks a 1 to 1 team ratio to the NBA.

2. The vast majority of rosters are players signed by the G-League itself,  then drafted by affiliates.  Rosters shuffle yearly.  These players are pure G-League fodder and they have no incentive to play team ball or help develop their teammates that are legitimate prospects.

3.  Foreign leagues take a lot of talent away from the States.  The two contract has improved this situation but there is a huge drop from the NBA fringe to the typical G-League player.
