All-Time High 103 Players With NBA D-League Experience Highlight 2013-14 NBA Opening Day Rosters

NEW YORK, October 29, 2012 – An all-time high 103 players with NBA Development League experience are featured on 2013-14 NBA opening-day rosters, up from 86 such players on opening day rosters last season. The 103 players represent 24 percent of all NBA players. NBA D-League alumni on opening day rosters have nearly tripled since 2006-07, with only 35 NBA D-Leaguers making NBA opening day rosters that season.

Twenty-nine of 30 NBA teams feature at least one player with NBA D-League experience, while the Atlanta Hawks have a league-high seven NBA D-League alumni on their roster. The Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns each have six former NBA D-Leaguers and an additional three teams have five former NBA D-Leaguers on squads.
