I believe Carmelo was the one who proposed it. He said the league should restructure the D-League system so that there will be more financial opportunities for players instead of going overseas. I think such a overhaul would bring more positives than negatives. For one thing nobody cares about current D-League. Not even players. It is like a punishment, or worse a slur to be called a D-League talent. They should do it so that the players truly have more opportunity grow, and not be financially stuck. Discrepancy shouldn't be that much between the leagues. The current system is a mess with 5 yr/150m contracts in one hand, and a league minimum still being set at ridiculous level. If D-League becomes a place like a Europa League to NBA's Champions League, then things could get interesting for players going right out of high school. There would be less worry for player development, and overall competition would increase imo.
