    Some cap info here...

    http://www.nbl.com.au/nbl-hq/salary-cap-player-points/

    Roster size is ten and you're allowed two imports.

    Around 28 games over 24 weeks + playoffs. However playoffs are pretty short. The Finals are only best of 3.

    I would expect his numbers to be similar to Patty Mills numbers in the NBA lockout.

    18.6 points per game, 2.3 rebounds per game and 5 assists per game.

    Would Lin have got minutes to do #Linsanity with Dragic and Lowry ahead of him if he made our roster?

    Hahaha NBL sucks. I used to go to every home Perth Wildcats game but having watched enough NBA I can barely watch a quarter of NBL now.

    Couldn't he AT LEAST get into Europe / China??

    Our league used to be comparable to the top basketball leagues worldwide, but the lack of media coverage and crooked team owners killed this league. It now resembles men playing netball. I can't remember many games last year where any teams cracked the 100+ point mark.

    I used to go to every Razorbacks and most Sydney Kings games, but there is not many people in the country who could even tell you when the season starts or even name a player from any of the teams.

    To anyone interested in the Australia NBL: The best team in the league is the New Zealand Breakers. Our superstar is former Cleveland Cavaliers player Cedric Jackson, who is the MVP of the league. That's about all you need to know. xDDDDDD
