    Default Basketball Roster Limits

    I am talking active rosters... in your country, what is your league's roster limits. The NBA allows 15 players, but only 12 can be active. Is this true in your country also?

    LNB Argentina: there can be up to 12 active players on each match, but only 9 can be older than 21 years old. The number of U21 players on the roster is unlimited.

    Hm, that's an interesting rule that facilitates younger players and forces development - that's awesome.

    It used to be even more youth-oriented until 1999, only 8 players over age 21 were allowed.

    Very true, yet at the same time, not much job security for older players.

    Right, despite that, I do like the idea that each team must have 3 younger players.

    I don't want any league to be big brother telling teams what kind of players they must have, but the idea of every team forced to develop and bring up players from a lower league is intriguing.

    On a few levels, it evens out the playing field in regards to team composition and budget.

    True, that is a big downside. But many older players end up playing for teams in lower divisions, or semi-pro regional leagues, or even get some EU passport and play in some crappy fifth-division team in Italy or Spain.

    That was the concept from the creation of the league (1984), that no team really needed more than 8 or 9 players at any game; and the main focus at the time was on helping the development of players, more than creating strong clubs. Another big downside is, its usual to see teams using just 8 or 9-player rotations for almost evert game.
