NBA Sends Memo Suggesting Possible Elimination Of One-And-Done Rule By 2021 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jun 15, 2018 7:29 pm

The NBA has sent a memo to all 30 teams on Friday indicating that the one-and-done rule could be eliminated as early as 2021.


The memo does not mention the one-and-done rule by name, but it is meant to remind teams the league and the players union could agree to scrap one-and-one before the expiration of the current collective bargaining deal in 2024.


The first draft in which the rule is changed will surely be loaded with the best prospects from two straight high school classes.


The memo serves as something of an advisory to teams who might think about trading away future first-round picks in the lead-up to Thursday's draft. 


The league instituted the one-and-done rule in 2005, but it has since been met with criticism on many sides of the issue.


The league will discuss the issue further during annual meetings at Summer League in Las Vegas, the memo says.

Good, screw the NCAA. If players want to make the leap to the NBA they should be able to do so. The one and done rule atm has absolutely nothing to do with helping young players out and everything to do with reducing the likelihood of drafting a bust.

it is not the NCAA's rule! players CHOOSE to play college ball because the NBA doesn't want them yet. they can play in europe for a year if they want to

it has never claimed to be about helping young players out. it is entirely about nba risk. eliminating the 1 and done will help the player and make the product that the ncaa and nba offer worse

we as fans should want the restrictions to be tightened, not loosened. as unfair as that is to a small group of future millionaires and their families

what is it that you're confused about? if the rule is eliminated in 2021 you will have the best prospects from the HS classes of 2020 and 2021 entering the nba in the same year

Of course it's not the NCAA's rule. Where did I say it was? I said screw the NCAA because the NCAA benefits heavily from the rule. They make obscene amounts of money off of young players who in return get relatively little compensation. For a lot of players on a roster a full ride is fantastic, but for a one and done prospect looking to play in the NBA it's very little. Sure, players can go overseas but going to a foreign country but that's clearly not a very attractive option considering how rarely it happens.

As a fan I'm not interested in eliminating risk for teams. They should step up their scouting. It just seems really silly to me that elite prospects (many of whom come from rough backgrounds, something that people forget) have to spend a year playing college/overseas when they have the talent to play in the NBA and would benefit more from playing in the NBA.

the players are using the NCAA for exposure just as much as the NCAA is using the players for profits

you should be interested in a better product on the court. which will be made worse by the elimination of the rule

the change would hurt parity as well...if that's something you care about

it's not a 1done rule, it's a minimum age rule. there is no 1done "rule".
i would think the nba wants to make sure their g-league is set for the onslaught of high school players opting to bypass college

With the NCAA taking advantage of some of these kids, I don't blame the NBA.

Provide them with some sort of lifetime insurance policy if they get hurt and can't play again while at school and make their scholarships be available throughout their lifetimes would be a good start. This would give them good safety nets and allow them to get a better degree if needed down the road if their basketball careers don't pan out.

it is a "one and done" rule because they have to be one year removed from HS basketball in order to be eligible for the NBA. A 19 year old HS graduate still is not eligible for the draft.

Dear teams,

As your commissioner, it is my duty to remind you: Do not tank. Tanking ruins the league. Don't talk about it, don't think about it, don't do it.

By the way, for those of you not inclined to heed my previous warning, the most advantageous time to tank will be for the 2021 draft. I am telling you now so you can begin preparations for tanking.

Sincerely,

Adam Silver.

P.S. Remember, no tanking!

Has a player talented enough to be drafted out of high school ever had a career ending injury while in college? I can't remember any time where that's happened. Yes it would be terrible if that ever occurred but I don't think it's something that's a huge concern with college basketball right now.

I don't get why "fans" want this to come to an end... Do you not see the difference in the level of player that's in the league currently compared to the Highschool trash we used to put up with in the early 2000s era?

I'd much rather see it become 2 years than 0...

I mean yea, obviously you've got your Lebron, Kobe and KG and a few others. But the list of SCRUBS that came out of HS in that time period is ugly.

On the other hand I DO Agree that the NCAA is ripping these guys off. I don't like that aspect of it, and I think the G League needs to prepare for a takeover, that would be the perfect scenario in my mind.

But I don't want to see every athletic potential "Darius Miles" guy in highschool getting drafted early again.


What do we get like 1 bust per year now? Doug McDermott is like the only guy I can think of recently not living up to his potential yet, and he's not even that bad...


Just imagine Trey Young being the number 1 pick because of his high school potential. I'm not a fan of this idea...

Let these guys develop first. We need more Damian Lillards and less Sebastian Telfair's

If they aren't good enough, they won't play. The NBA is basically just developing a more expansive farm system to bypass the crooked NCAA. Increased international appeal, out-of-HS eligibility, longer drafts (3 or 4 rounds), revamped developmental league (G League)... We're trending towards the future, my friend. Do you really have to put "fans" in quotation marks just because we believe that's a good thing?
