UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) - THE NBA D League will function with little effect from the NBA lockout this coming season if the lockout extends to the D League's regular season.

D League spokesman Patrick Mitsch says the one big difference will be the availability of NBA players.

Mitsch says if the lockout continues, players who played in the NBA last season, or players drafted in the recent NBA Draft would not be allowed to play in the D League.

Other than that, teams will be able to get players in the same way they have, and Mitsch says there will be a D League draft in the fall.
