G League Development Program Revamped, Includes $500K Salaries

26 Mai, 2020, 11:37 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Previously, the program offered prospects a $125K salary. In fact, the G-League has even created a new development program for players who would like to go through their system instead of going to college.

While Ball likely never would have had the chance to play in college due to eligibility issues, both players turned down the chance to take part in the G League's select contract program in order to play overseas.

The group of prospects will participate in training and exhibition games against other G League teams and worldwide clubs. The team will play around 10-12 games against existing G League teams in games that won't count against the standings. He, and any others who follow, will play under the G League umbrella, focusing on draft preparation, basketball readiness and life skills.

And if they do, "Secretary Pompeo would likely be unable to certify that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy". Still, Beijing wouldn't let anything delay a more hard-line stand in Hong Kong.

"That's a real program that the NBL has", Abdur-Rahim told ESPN. Under the structure of the new program, prospects will be placed on a team filled with veteran players and experienced coaches to provide mentorship. Former NBA coach Sam Mitchell is expected to be a candidate to coach the team, according to the ESPN story.

LaMelo Ball and RJ Hampton shook up the college and professional basketball landscapes previous year by opting to play basketball in the National Basketball League in Australia over playing stateside. "That's counter-intuitive", Abdur-Rahim said. That's counterintuitive. The NBA is the best development system in the world, and those players shouldn't have to go somewhere else to develop for a year.

This is a major win for the newly implemented G League system that now provides high school students with a viable gateway to the National Basketball Association without the need to spend a year in college. For now, those players - such as Green - will still become draft-eligible once they're a year removed from high school.
