2016-17 NBA Assignments

NBA teams can assign players with less than three years of service to their NBA D-League affiliates an unlimited number of times throughout the season. The NBA team maintains the assigned player’s rights and can recall that player at any time.

Last season, an all-time high 68 players were assigned to the NBA D-League – including 10 first-round picks from the 2015 NBA Draft – an all-time high 321 times.
