Full Answer

The NBA's Development League is essentially the minor league farm system for the NBA. Development League players are under contract to the parent team and participate in a schedule of games with other Development League teams. While the pay is significantly less than for the Euroleague, players are eligible for a call up with the parent team. Typically, such call ups are for 10 games at a time and pay up to $60,000.
