Should NBL move to 12-man match day roster

Should NBL move from 11 to 12 in 2017-2018 match day roster?
NBA is now 13-day roster from memory.

You say what benefit? Europe league play 12-man, it just gives you more team balance and options on match day. NBA allows 13, are you saying there's no benefit and they should go back to 12?

I didn't actually relise they were on an 11 man roster, yes I would agree they should go to 12, no reason not to.

Matt,

How many of those players get DNP-CD?

If the league can not sustain the talent, having 12, 13 or 15 players on your roster won't matter as it will just devalue the entire league.

If they are not good enough and will just take up a roster spot ending with that player getting DNP-CD, they are just warming up, doing lay ups and giving a few high fives.

But 12 is a nicer number than 11, especially for basketball!

The league can sustain 12 roster, as theres an extended squad of guys on development contracts.

Matt, I think so, they went and got a third import and the league has never looked better, so 12 on game day should work just fine, but sustainability if crucial so I would cap it there I think...

We play shorter games than NBA, no point just for someone to play 30 seconds a game

If we go back to 12 min quarters then yes.

No rosters were expanded from 10 players to 11 before the start of this season.

You're allowed 12, but one of them has to be a DP.

why have 12 on the bench when in most of the games 9 and 10 do not see court time in the current 10 man bench. They get a min or 2 in garbage time in some games.

I seem to recall 10 , and 2 dps , and the dps could only travel 3 road games , to save clubs costs , and LK made it 11 and 1 dp , and the dp can travel to all road games..
(Boti ; 'the captain has to start.' Although 36ers captain is pouring cold water on that , best 6th man.)
I think 10 and 2 would be sufficient...

No point increasing roster size unless clubs want it. Just another wage to pay when their focus should be profitability and stability.

hahaha kr!
I really don't think the benefits outweigh the costs. NBA teams have way more money, embark on extended road trips, and play 48 minute games, so the extra depth makes more sense for them.
I don't see any need for it here. Unless the teams themselves start asking for it then no.

I wouldn't mind a return to the days when teams had a 12 man roster, but only 10 suited up for the games. Although that is partially replaced by the formalised DP system. Maybe just some more flexibility with DPs, or maybe we just need to choose them better.

I really don't think a team needs more than 5 on the bench, but the depth to cover for injuries is good.
