One and Done will still be confusing.

Starting in 2021 players can declare for the draft out of HS. My question, will the NBA enforce straight out of HS or go to college for two years or just straight out of HS? If they don't have to go for two years you'll still have a lot of one and dones..Look at this draft, players like Trae Young, Collin Sexton, Shai Alexander, Lonnie Walker and several other freshman wouldn't of been first round picks out of HS..So i'm confused..also if you do change it to straight out of HS or two years does the NBA extend the draft to 3 rounds?? In baseball you have a ton of players go straight to the pros and play in the minors to develop for a couple years...curious on what the experts on this board think...

Make it a 3 or 4 round draft

Make it a 3 or 4 round draft with more of an emphasis on 2 way contracts as the G League grows.

Clarity

A little confused here. My impression was in 2021 miss could come straight from HS, but it sounds like they have to play two years in college now. But that’s actually not what you’re saying lol help me out man. My sixers have that 2021 unprotected which would be super valuable if it’s the first scenario, outtta hs.

Where does it say that?

Where are you getting they have to play two years in College? Everything I'm seeing says end the one and done rule. Eliminate the one year from high school before you enter the draft rule. I just read three articles on it, they all say that.

The NBA is doing this because

The NBA is doing this because of one player. Jalen Green. Look him up. He's ready now to come into the league and he shouldn't be going to college. He's about to be a junior, might be the next Kobe or T Mac

Doubt they're doing it for

Doubt they're doing it for "one player" they're doing it becaue the NCAA keeps crying about it..Are you Jalen Green? Jalen not even ranked #1 in his state. And also he's in the class of 2020, rule wouldn't be in affect unitl 2021.

Sexton and Walker would have

Sexton and Walker would have been 1st rounders out of HS.

While I would be in favor of

While I would be in favor of allowing hs players back into draft I would absolutely not be in favor of a rule that forces players who do decide to attend college to stay for 2 years. That would basically punish players who do decide to attend college by making them wait 2 years and would force a lot of kids who might not necessarily be ready to make the leap out of high school. Someone like Trae young is a perfect example of why this would not work. He basically came into school pretty unheralded and played his way into being a lottery pick. However, if the 2 year rule was in place he’d be forced to come back to Oklahoma or sit out a year because he made the decision to go to school. Doesn’t seem fair does it. That’s basically a year of lost earnings.

Jalen Green is a stud, was #1

Jalen Green is a stud, was #1 in Nation for his class until a month ago when another stud Evan Mobley overtook him for that spot. Green is a big time scoring wing who can score at all 3 levels and is very athletic. Still needs to work on his jumper to get it more consistent, but other than that he has all the tools. He does draw comparisons to Kobe Bryant, but I think his game more resembles Clyde Drexler.

I guess I'm confused

It will just go back to the way it used to be. They won't add in other restrictions like two years in College. The whole thing is to not force players that don't want to go to College to go. Not try and stop players from going, which that two year rule would do.

I don't think you need to add more rounds to the draft. Players will always be stupid and declare for the draft when they aren't ready. Truth is College is still better at developing most players over the G league. I was shocked Duval and McCoy weren't drafted, but they had to know that before they deglared. NBA gives them feedback, yet they declared anyway. For what 25,000 to 75,000 in the G league? What ever happened to stay in school unless your A First round pick?

Has any of these changes

Has any of these changes become official? I would've thought something like this needed to be voted on my the players union as well as the league itself.

The one and done rule surely

The one and done rule surely helps the NCAA as players who wouldn't go to college now have to.

The players who have gone straight out of HS would not be as high as you'd think. Even in the last draft before one and done only 3 first rounders were one and done guys in 2005. In the much hyped 2003 draft behind LBJ and Darko most other guys had gone to college. Ironically the most top heavy HS draft was in 2001 which is considered one of the worse NBA drafts ever.

It would be interesting to wonder how many top guys other the years since 2006 would have gone straight to the NBA. Apart from Bargnani and Blake Griffin I think all top picks have been one and done guys.

The 2021 draft could be very loaded and teams trading picks will think carefully about what they give away. Later protected picks may well find more interest so top teams looking to do deals may get more takers which could help all parties.

The NCAA is struggling with

The NCAA is struggling with an image problem. It is perceived, rightfully so, as an institution that has corrupt intent and a hypocritical mission.

Eliminating the one-and-done moves the needle somewhat on that, but without imposing similar rules that are in place for baseball and football, there will still be a significant number of players who leave after one year.

I like the idea of a two year commitment. It helps legitimize the NCAA product, and yet it's not such an onerus commitment that a glut of players will turn pro straight out of high school to avoid giving away significant time of earning potential as a pro. I don't want to see a system that encourages fringe prospects to turn pro just to avoid a lengthy college commitment.

However, in exchange for a two-year commitment, universities should guarantee the final two years of college education to athletes free of charge once they have exhausted their pro career to complete their degree.

I think that's a fair trade, one that could benefit athletes in the long run as it would be much easier to pursue a degree without the stress, pressure and time commitment of being an athlete to focus on their education.

I know as a former member of the military, this worked out for me as part of the whole reason for signing up in the first place for myself and many others was to do our time and take advantage of the educational opportunities that awaitedd after our service. It seems like a similar exchange could be arranged between the NCAA and athletes that would benefit everyone.

Just an idea. ...
