This article seems to back up what I was saying earlier this month. Baskeetball needs a minor league system or something that reduces initial player salaries and keeps these raw young players from taking up bench spots before they are ready to play. Each NBA team has players that they draft and then sit on their bench a few years until they are a free agent. They haven’t played much yet, but now the team now has to shell out a max contract to keep them or wach them leave and bloom somewhere else. I miss the mediocre 34 year old veterans you used to see – where have you gone Chris Dudley? Oops, he’s still on a roster!
