I think 2-way contracts means you can only stay with the big club for 45 days, so a 2 way isn't going to help much if we need someone to play while someone is out with injuries. It says 45 days and not games so you would be wasting those days when they have to practice. I bet the guys that get those are going to because they plan on never using but will use the days to allow them to practice with the Celts (Bird type guys/I hope Rosco Allen-Waffles is one).45 days is something like 20-25 games, right? That seems like amount of time short of a much bigger injury.
Since you seem to know more about 2-ways than I do, how long must they stay down in the G-league before being recalled again for another 45-day stretch?
I don't know. That was info from something I heard mentioned only once before, I thought it was weird when I heard it, that's why it stuck with me. IMO It would be better if they limited the number of call-ups. I guess the players have to play half and half, it makes sense but I think it's weird it said days and not games.
Yes, its 45 days. Those days do not have to be consecutive. Furthermore, days before the D-league season starts and after it ends do not count against the 45, so practically it will be closer to 60 or so -- about 1/3 of the season.
The reason it's days and not games is because players get paid based on days on a roster, and not games played. This means if you want to just call the player up for practices and not for games, you pay him the same as if you call him up for games only and not practices.
