I keep hearing how the draft prospects have an NCAA deadline (April 10) to declare for the draft but a lot of them are going to use the NBA deadline of April 29.
What's the difference? And what's the point of having 2 deadlines in the first place?
whole things a mess. Players should be able to enter out of high school they never should have changed that. if they're not ready don't pick em.
Hope someone clarifies this up for us, because it's been confusing the hell out of me lately as well.
ncaa deadline is if your able to go back to school, if you dont make it then your not suppose to be able to go back, more likely if you wait then most kids are going to NBA
nba deadline is declaring for draft
its an exception, the Nba could tell the ncaa to waiver for kids if they wanna go back
that NCAA athletes had to declare by April 10, but the NBA allows them to withdraw by the April 29 date. I think the NCAA would impose 5 or 10 game bans on those who withdraw and want to return after April 10. If their school allows them back.
Raybeas I think you have it backwards. If a player declared before the 10th they have until April 10 to withdraw, but a player who has yet to declare has until April 29th to do so and I don't think you can withdraw between April 10 and April 29.
Yea thats wack. I thought before you could withdraw your name a a month or a couple of weeks before the draft? I remember just 4 years ago when Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington entered their names in the draft, they worked out got feedback and came back to school and won the championship. They were able to come back because they didn't sign an agent. If you sign an agent then I understand not allowing kids to come back but not allowing kids to come back at all because they want to enter their name and workout with teams to see if they are good enough is stupid. By the time they work out they should have enough knowledge on whether they should go back to school or not and work on their game.
Its the NCAA being jerks as usual. If NBA and NCAA would work toether solution is simple.
- You can go straight from high, some guys are good enough to go straight to the league,and /or guys like Barnes would have been better off their instead of struggling to fit into college program and hurting draft stcok.
-if you drafted in first round you are obligated to go to that team as you will have a guaranteed contract and more than enough money to go back to school if you flop.
-if you go in second round you can go to college to whom ever still have scholarships available. The team still holds your rights or has first right of refusal after you graduate if you want to come to the league. You must attend college at this point for a minimum of 2-3 years.
Something along those lines would work but the two entities just don't wana work together for the benifit of the players.
