One and Done Rule Likely Over In The NBA
The NBA's "one and done" rule may likely be coming to an end according to a recent report by the USA Today . The rule, which has been in place since the 2006, requires players to play at least one year of college or international basketball before being allowed to be eligible for the NBA Draft. Silver said this to the USA Today
My personal view is that we’re ready to make that change. It won’t come immediately, but…when I weighed the pros and cons – (and) given that (former Secretary of State) Condoleezza Rice and her (NCAA) commission has recommended to the NBA that those one-and-done players now come directly into the league and, in essence, the college community is saying ‘We do not want those players anymore,’ I mean that sort of tips the scale in my mind that we should be taking a serious look at lowering our age to 18
Some outlets are reporting that the NBA has already informed teams that the league is targeting 2021 as a potential year for when the rule would change. The new rule would allow players to enter the NBA draft straight from high school. Should the NBA eliminate the "one and done" rule? Let us know below.
