links between NBL and NBA teams?
I have this memory that at some stage years ago there was talk of NBA teams setting up camps out here or developing partnerships with local teams for talent recognition and development.
Did it ever happen? If not, why not?
It seems to me that the only way Aussies get a chance overseas is if the players and their agents put in the effort to chase it. We often hear about soccer teams overseas poaching our best players, but I don't hear about it happening that way in basketball.
I know that there's frequently an 'NBA out' clause in contracts, but how often do our guys get a call-up?
