NBA, NBPA agree on labor pact that could include new in-season tournament as

One thing that I found interesting is that Teams will be able to sign three two-way players instead of two. the NBA has two way-contracts, which allows a player to sign a guaranteed deal with an NBA franchise and play for both its NBA professional team and its G-League affiliate . Over 50% of NBA players have G League experience - this is basically saying that the NCAA is not the player development pipeline that it once was.

The mid season tournament is their answer to the NHL heritage classic creating some buzz for a city to host a mini tourney .

Using Vegas to host it of course ; not having a NBA team right now and the gambling aspect is a huge bonus .
