Default Euroleague makes proposal to the NBA

Quote:
The Euroleague is hopeful that the NBA's labor negotiations may result in young European players postponing their move to the NBA, according to Euroleague president Jordi Beromeu.

Bertomeu told SI.com that he met with NBA commissioner David Stern approximately a year and a half ago to discuss ways to help prevent young Europeans from moving to the NBA prematurely.

"We made a proposal once we knew that negotiations [with the players' union] had to take place," Bertomeu said. "We presented a document of elements that could be included in the negotiations between the NBA and the players' union.

"We can't give too many concrete details. But part of the proposal included a formula that included the elements of age, rookie salaries and how the rookie salaries computed into the salary cap. It was designed to create an incentive for the players to stay in Europe."

Stern was noncommittal.

"I don't remember the memo, but I do remember the subject coming up in conversation," he told SI.com. "Obviously, it could only be considered in the context of negotiations with the players' union for a collective bargaining agreement.

"I also made the point to Jordi that many [European] players are now being drafted in the second round, and our teams don't sign them," Stern said. "Therefore, they do stay in Europe to develop."

Why the hell would Stern care what the euroleague thinks unless there is a profit for the NBA in it?
