2013/14 NBA D-League Assignments

Much has been made of the increased tax penalties and the effort to improve parity under the NBA’s current Collective Barganing Agreement. However, one underreported detail of the CBA relates to D-League assignments, which now have fewer restrictions and limits than ever before. As a result, more and more NBA teams are engaging in single-affiliate partnerships with D-League clubs, which often allows the NBA franchise to control coaching hires, roster moves, and other aspects of its D-League affiliate.

The upshot is that more NBA teams are using their D-League squads like true minor league affiliates, frequently assigning young prospects or players rehabbing injuries. With 14 NBA clubs engaged in single-affiliate relationships with D-League teams this season, I expect we’ll see a new record set for D-League assignments in 2013/14.

Throughout the season, we’ll use this space to track all of ’13/14’s assignments and recalls, team by team. You can find this page, which we’ll update throughout the season, anytime on the right sidebar under “Hoops Rumors Features.” You can also refresh your memory on the rules for D-League assignments by checking out our primer.

Here are the NBA’s D-League assignments for 2013/14:
