‘‘I am surprised at the number of players that have been let go,'' NBDL director of player personnel Milton Newton said. Each team is allowed one roster transaction per week and 10 roster changes for the 56-game season.Players replaced because of promotion don't count against teams. ‘‘Maybe we didn't see all these moves coming, but to be honest we always knew the possibility of multiple roster moves would be there,'' Newton added.‘‘It's part of the reason why we put a limit on transactions.We could have been looking at situations where coaches were making 30 moves in a season. ‘‘If we didn't have a limit a coach might bring in a player for a few days, find out he's not a good fit, and then send him packing.We didn't want that.But coaches still want to win, so they're going to make moves.'' Newton said the league wants stability among the eight teams.All transactions must be approved by the league office. There have been times when Newton has advised a coach against releasing a player because the league believes it is a player that can be developed or the team is getting away from the stability the league wants. It happens in Fayetteville.Yet, the Patriots haven't been stable all season. Many patriotic menNo team partakes of the player pool more than Fayetteville.

"Players can't be at a comfort level," said NBDL player personnel director, Milton Newton, when he referred to the league's training camp, where everybody, it seemed, wastrying out.However, that part of the NBDL has remained constant as teams are always looking for "a better player."There are eight teams in the NBDL.As of now, each has an eleven-man roster, which includes "an allocation player/s" ( a player assigned to the team because of his/their regional connection to the team's city) and two "first-year" professional players (those who were the "last cuts" from the NBA training camps).This means that spots on the roster are limited and very competitive.
