The NBA and NBPA are holding discussions to end the one-and-done rule. The league prefers to have the rule take effect in time for the 2022 NBA Draft.
The NBA's pursuit of NBPA concessions in the areas of mandating that draft prospects furnish teams with medical information and an additional requirement that would center on attendance and participation at the NBA pre-draft combine remain obstacles to a deal.
The NBPA has shown no inclination to surrender on these issues without a giveback elsewhere from the NBA.
The first draft that allows high school players to enter the NBA again will be one of the deepest in recent memory as it will stack the best players from two classes.
As one GM told ESPN, "There was a run on trying to get 2022 picks at the trade deadline."
