LaVar Ball Plans to Start Basketball League for High School Graduates
With momentum gathering to reshape the one-and-done draft entry rule, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA govt director Michele Roberts met with the brand new Commission on College Basketball in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, league sources advised ESPN.
Silver and Roberts delivered the league and union views on points dealing with the basketball business, together with ways in which altering the dynamics of the NBA draft might impression the professional and school video games. The assembly was described as informational in nature, though the NCAA in the end has no formal say in guidelines governing the league’s early-entry guidelines.
Draft eligibility guidelines have to be collectively bargained between the NBA and the Players Association, and that dialog has been ongoing between the league and union, sources inform ESPN.
Nevertheless, there’s a rising perception throughout the league that Silver’s need to finish the one-and-done — the flexibility of school basketball gamers to enter the NBA draft after taking part in one yr in school — may very well be pushing the game nearer to highschool gamers having the chance to straight enter the league once more. For that change to occur, although, the union would most likely want to cede the one-and-done rule and agree to a mandate that gamers coming into school should keep two years earlier than declaring for the draft.
