imageThe long-awaited advent of two-way contracts as seen in the NHL, which would enable NBA teams to maintain 18-man rosters instead of the current max of 15.

As reported by Marc Stein of ESPN, big changes are expected in NBA D-League with the new CBA.

Per ESPN, D-League compensation has changed since last season, but only slightly. There are only two contract classifications now; A players earn $26,000 (up from $25,500) and B players earn $19,000. Gone is the $13,000 C classification. Daily per diem, meanwhile, has been raised from $40 to $50, with D-Leaguers continuing to receive housing and medical care to offset the comparatively low wages in relation to what they could command in leagues abroad. The good news for D-Leaguers: Big changes are coming in the NBA’s new labor agreement, with salaries expected to jump to the $50,000-to-$75,000 range and the long-awaited advent of two-way contracts as seen in the NHL, which would enable NBA teams to maintain 18-man rosters instead of the current max of 15.
