The NBA has agreed to a deal with YouTube to televise the remainder of the D-League schedule, the league announced Tuesday. More than 350 games of the D-League -- the NBA's minor developmental league -- will be broadcast on YouTube.com and via a video player on NBA.com. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. "The NBA's latest initiative with YouTube marks another milestone in our partnership and a great way to tip off the 12th season of the NBA Development League," NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. "By turning to our longtime partner, YouTube, we are able to bring the NBA D-League to basketball fans around the world, further expanding the league's growth and showcasing future NBA stars." The D-League started with eight teams located in the South in 2001 and has expanded to 16 teams spanning from Los Angeles to Maine. All teams have an affiliate agreement with at least one NBA team with some franchises using players from up to four NBA teams.
