I don't see how the Dleague will be allowed. I thought there couldn't be any communication in anyway with Players and owners. Wouldn't this kind of side step that? It would let all team brass watch these players.

Doubt they can play in them. But, it will be interesting to see if it is more competitive and if undrafted college players can sign. Can the D League draw without the promise of the NBA? That is the question that needs to be answered. Pretty safe to say though that most players will choose money abroad.

I wonder if they'll start televising them during the lockout. That would be a huge plus to the D-League.

I seriously doubt that, but it would definitely be fun.

The Versus channel televises their regular season games and NBATV shows their playoff games.
