Not only injuries, but if you get the call up, you need a couple lopsided games to happen either way so you will see some time on the court.The key to G-League call ups I feel is injuries. Get some injuries on the NBA level, get a call up and show what you can do.
Later in the season - it might be call ups to look at younger guys, but this early in season, looking for noticeable injuries in NBA to get a call up. But both Grant and Gilyard seem to be putting themselves in good position.
True. Call ups this early in the season are basically roster fillers. Maybe you show them something in practice/workouts, but in reality your right - only getting in the game because of lopsided score.Not only injuries, but if you get the call up, you need a couple lopsided games to happen either way so you will see some time on the court.
You would think - but I don't think that is always the case, especially on the defensive end. I think that is where most NBA players try to rest. Much harder to make to the league as a defensive specialist these days. You need to be able to score and shoot in todays game.I haven't watched G-League games, but I assume those guys are busting their asses for a call-up.
they're getting $40,500 for the year in the G-League.
if you get called up, you're getting $5,820 PER DAY that you're on the NBA roster.
