Subject to NBL approval.....

A question for the more learned regarding player contracts.......I just wondered what exactly is meant by "subject to NBL approval". What are they looking for? Is it a question of whether the $ amount quoted is too low for the player's worth, or is it more about whether the league is protecting players or the clubs for that matter? How long does it take for the NBL to scrutinise a contract? Have they ever rejected a contract?

I'd say they check that the contract meets various rules set by the league and that all is OK with the points cap and the salary cap. Players will often get paid on the side, but there is always an official amount lodged with the NBL and they do a basic check to see if the amount is roughly in line with their points values.

e.g., you wouldn't have a 10 point player getting a $60k contract.
