    I was about to type something similar at the bottom of my post.

    This article is a little over a year old, but it's the best info I could find with a quick search:

    Salaries remain flat: $25,500, $19,000 and $13,000 for the league's three player classifications. Which means D-League players are virtually playing for free -- and a modest per diem on the road of $40 compared to $120 in the NBA -- although they do receive housing and insurance benefits. It was also brought to my attention this week that the D-League quietly does have a per-team salary cap of $178,000 ... with a dollar-for-dollar luxury tax, just like in the NBA, for teams that go over that amount.
    I have no idea which of these classifications Babb would be - perhaps lower, as a rookie - but he'll likely make more money in 10 days with Boston than a whole season in the D-League.

    It's official:

    Boston Celtics@celtics
    The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed guard Chris Babb to a 10-day contract: http://on.nba.com/1fOwTrY


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Re: Babb to Celtics

    Seemed like it was inevitability based on the talk about Babb during the Celtics' training camp. Seems like NBA teams are slowly learning how best to stash guys on D-league teams and let them develop. Exciting stuff.

    I'm assuming you want Babb to tear it up by "doing very well," rather than rip up the contract, right?


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    I didn't realize who coaches the Maine NBDL team until I saw his name in this ESPN article:

    C's expected to sign Babb to 10-day deal - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

    Different Mike Taylor.....not the one that played at ISU. Don't think that Mike Taylor is head coach material. Red Claws coach, Mike Taylor is a big white guy.

    It does link right to the player's ESPN profile, but that would make more sense haha

    ESPN linked the name to a picture of our Mike Taylor.

    Yeah I just checked and saw his pic and bio.
    I was surprised when I clicked on that link and saw the ISU Mike Taylor.
