NBA Trying To Add Two Conditions To Elimination Of One-And-Done Rule 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Oct 20, 2018 7:03 pm

The NBA and National Basketball Players Association are struggling to reach an agreement on lowering the league's minimum age to 18.


The NBA is attempting to attach two conditions: requiring player-agents furnish all teams with medical information on draft prospects and also mandating players' attendance and some level of participation in the pre-draft combine.


The NBA hopes to have a deal with the NBPA to remove the one-and-done rule in time for the 2022 NBA Draft.


The league and union must collectively bargain any changes to a CBA that was ratified in 2016.

That's totally fair and will benefit scouting.

Whats the reason the NBAPA would be against lowering the age? Why fight this rule? Whats their reasoning?

I think they don’t want more younger guys taking up NBA roster spots that would normally go to vets. The members of the NBAPA are vets who would rather not be replaced by unproven 18 year olds making a lot less money. At least that’s my theory.

All teams getting medicals makes sense. But mandatory combine attendance? Where the hell is that coming from?

The NBAPA has long wanted teams to draft 18-year-olds straight from high school. The NBA has long justified the One-And-Done Rule by arguing in part that teams need to see players train with and play against "adult" competition before they can make educated choices on Draft Day. Finally, player agents have argued that since their clients have already played a year in college, attendance at the combine should be voluntary.

This seems to be a good compromise to me. The NBA is effectively saying, "Sure, you don't have to go to college...but if you don't go to college, then you need to show up at the combine." Sounds fair.

From my understanding, the NBAPA is for lowering the age limit but is against the NBA adding these (or any) conditions. On the other hand, the NBA has long been in support of maintaining (or increasing) the age limit. E.g., see these links:

Etc.

18 years old is an adult. You can't discriminate against an adult because of age unless allowed by law. The only reason the NBA and the players association can get away with excluding 18 year olds from marketing their skills is because an 18 year old hasn't sued in court. Someday a 18 year old super stud will sue the NBA and the courts will force NBA to remove their illegal prohibition against 18 year olds. Additionally, the NBA isn't entitled to compel players to provide any information not required by law. Players might decide they want to participate in camps and combines but the NBA can't compel a player to do something they decide is not in their best interest.
