Why don't we have better benches?
As we have seen teams can easily get multiple shortterm injuries or can get caught with players who aren't good enough or who aren't pulling there weight.
So with the current rules why don't teams have better players in there squads to start with?
Teams can have a nextstar player paid for by the league and in addition to their 11 rostred players but only Sydney got one.
Teams can have an Asian Market player in place of a regular player but same only a few teams seem to have one. Surely you can pick up decent players cheaply who would be better options than some of the scrubs.
Teams can also play a development player every game now. Thats like a free spot for an ok player on league minimum slary but it seems most of them are a long way from NBL ready. Aren't there guys just back from college not quite as good as Frolling and Naar who would be good enough to get a game.
