On Thursday afternoon, the NBA trade deadline passed. With upwards towards fifteen total trades (involving nearly half of the league's teams), it's safe to say plenty of squads were wheeling and dealing. And while certain teams went on to strike gold, others, simply put, struck out instead.
In any event, whether big league teams must fill out roster spots following big trades, or if still existent voids need to be filled following trade-attempt failures, the D-League is where they now look for the necessary injection(s) of life.
As such, more than a handful of minor leaguers are said to be receiving call-ups to The Association after the dust clears. Let's take a look below at some of the more talented players moving on up.
