With the addition of the Westchester Knicks to the NBA D-League this upcoming season, returning player rights will need to be addressed by every NBA D-League team in order to prepare for an expansion draft.
According to a source, the expansion draft for the Westchester Knicks will take place on September 1 in order to provide Westchester with a returning player list.
Every NBA D-League team aside from Westchester has the opportunity to select 12 players which they would like to protect. The remaining players will be fair game for the Knicks to draft, and obtain those NBA D-League player rights.
With the expansion draft on the horizon, DleagueDigest.com figured it would hold it’s own mock expansion draft, and also project which players teams would protect. Below are the results.
