What is the D-League's biggest problem?


The D-League is something I am becoming more interested and am working to understand the nuances of the league. Scott's tweet this afternoon (seen here) got me thinking about the struggles facing the D-League.

Is the NBA's lack of trust in the players currently in the D-League the biggest problem facing the league today? 27 players were called up to the league last season from the D-League but we continue to see players like Elson get signed instead of these younger players getting a chance. Instead of giving young, unproven players a chance to shine, they continue to sign (for the most part) older, veteran players who have played in the NBA before but don't really bring potential to the table.

I realize that the NBA is using the players in the D-League more the past few years. However, is the lack of full trust the biggest problem facing the league? If not, what is? Where does the trust issue rank?

Thanks for any insight.
