D-League Players Starting To Benefit Following NBA Trade Deadline

As the dust from the NBA trade deadline clears, a handful of D-Leaguers are already beginning to sign contracts with big league teams, hoping to fill still existent voids.

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.
