Not sure what to think of the OKC "stashing" the rookie they just drafted in the D-League. Why not accept rookie deal and still go to the DL

Quite a sacrifice. $25K instead of $1 mill. Not like he can't be assigned to the D-League and still have the same access.

Thunder are pioneering drafting a player and underpaying them significantly. Ok.

I mean I guess I get it. But the Thunder basically having their cake and eating it too. Players Union letting that fly?




Wow....25k instead of 1m...

If they don't sign him by a certain period they waive his rights and any team can pick him up from the D league, so that doesn't really help them as much as it seems like it would.
