Designated NBL1 slot on NBL roster
Posting this idea from Andrew Canyon on the NBL pocket podcast. I think it's a great idea to support the Nbl1 and support the league growth.
What if every Nbl1 team was allocated one roster spot that has to be used on an NBL1 player from the previous season and it has no restrictions eg it can be an import or a local player. You might need to put a salary cap on it to stop teams abusing the system to get a fourth import but could be easily fixed.
You could make it has to be from the local league too if you want. Eg Perths spot has to be used on a West player.
Most often this would be used on the best imports in the leagues but would also give Aussies an opportunity too through a designated spot.
Very cool concept. Thoughts?
