NBLC 2019-2020 Protected List Announced
The National Basketball League of Canada has announced the NBLC 2018-19 protected list broken down by team.
NBL Canada’s protected list allows teams to retain the rights of players who’ve participated in the 2018-19 NBL Canada season and retains the rights to those players throughout the 2019-20 season.
Competing teams may make an offer for a protected player if they remained unsigned. The team who holds that player’s rights has 48 hours to either match or surpass the offer, in which instances a player would remain which his protected club; or the protected team may decline to match. In these cases, that player would join the new contracted team.
Player’s rights are held until the final day of the NBLC’s regular season.
