High School Players back in draft?

I had this idea on my mind every since high school players were band from the draft. I think they should be able to go to the draft cause there not going to get that much if they stay just for one year. But anyway, here my idea: I think that in the next draft high school kids can get drafted but they can only get drafted in the 2nd round. By doing this teams wont wasted there first round pick. And it well make the 2nd round way more better besides being boring. Also know you can see who really want's to play in the NBA. What do u think?

that way school players

that way school players would actually stay one year in college to get more money the next year...and youll see teams that have draft picks outside the lottery purposly trying to get draft picks in the second round...it would be kinda wierd

I like the rule that you

I like the rule that you have to be 1 year removed of high school.. It add maturity to the game.

I'm sure you can name about 10 star players that went from prep to pro.. But I bet I can name over 10 times the number of players who became nobodies. This is why they changed that rule.

Nobobies are guys who aren't

Nobobies are guys who aren't playing minutes or playing overseas.

oh...i cant say i can call

oh...i cant say i can call anyone making that much money in the nba or 500,000 a year ( korleone young prep-pro) a nobody. there are a nice amoutn of guys making more money overseas then guys in the nba are making. and percentage wise there are more , as you say, nobodys who went to college then nba then prep to pros.

i really really cant call anyone not getting major minutes a nobody if they have even made it to the nba or high level in europe because i respect how hard it is to even make it to that level and then stay at that level

I don't seem to grasp this

I don't seem to grasp this argument against a multi-billion dollar organization having qualifications for a job. If this rule was not in place, there would be the incredibly immature Jeremy Tyler in every mock draft as a lottery pick having accomplished nothing but beat up kids incapable of guarding someone his size, skill, and level of athleticism. You want to know someone who was able to guard the 18-year old should be high school senior, a former D3 center and 6'7" 31-year old man who by all accounts worked his butt over every day in practice. It was good that Brandon Jennings went to Italy and got humbled. It has been good that Latavious Williams has gone to the NBDL and gotten professional coaching, because the guy didn't how to run plays or practice hard. There is absolutely no reason to change something that is making the NBA a better product.
