Hate flopping? The NBA has a rule change for the D-League that you're going to love.
Being a first round pick comes with certain expectations that alludes those that go in the second round or even undrafted. To us, a first round pick means some sort of long term solution that steadily measures out a remedy for what ails a team until that weakness has been fully strengthened. As far as expectations go, being sent down to the D-League is not one of the expectations we hold for a first round pick, but especially a lottery pick.
