NBA Development League becomes NBA G League

NEW YORK — The NBA and Gatorade announced that beginning Tuesday the NBA Development League (NBA D-League), the NBA’s minor league, will officially become the NBA G League.

Beginning with the 2017-2018 season, the NBA G League will feature 26 teams, an expansion of four teams since last season, 22 of which are owned and operated by NBA franchises.

Among those organizations is the Maine Red Claws, who play at the Portland Expo. The Red Claws, who are affiliated with the NBA’s Boston Celtics, have been in operation since 2009.

For the first time this coming fall, NBA teams can sign up to two “two-way” players to NBA contracts. These contracts allow “two-way” players to be with their NBA parent team for up to 45 days, spending most of the season in the NBA G League.
