Is this something any team has implemented as a strategy on a consistent basis? As in use a part of your MLE every to sign guys from the second, or from the G league like Diakite to three year deals? Seems like a good idea if you find someone of value and pretty low risk if you are wrong about them.
Yep, most teams do this. Historically, we've done it pretty often. We should have done it this year but we decided to spend the whole MLE on vets (DJA and Forbes).
