Andy and Mike talked with Sporting News NBA Writer Sean Deveney this morning. Sean previewed the opening round of the NBA Playoffs and also says that there may be a new solution to the age debate for when a player is allowed to enter the NBA.
Sean Deveney: "They're gonna have to find a way to have players who want to come in and make a living right away. Who don't want to go to Europe or someplace else... And what's going to happen from what I've been told, is that the D-League will be sort of the bargaining chip and they're going to expand D-League salaries, which are terrible. I mean you make a max of about $24,000, $25,000 a year and that's pretty tough amount to raise a family on... They're going to make it more of a European style, pay-scale where you could have guys making $150,000, $250,000, $300,000... Which all of a sudden makes it a little more palatable."
