Looks like it may not be called “one and done” in the NCAA soon.
If commissioner Adam Silver gets his way that policy is about to be “done and done.”
This after the NBA hinted at changing draft eligibility rules by 2021 in a memo sent to teams Friday in which the league informed teams that “eligibility rules” may be changed as early as 2021 due to issues “related to player development and the corruption investigation in college basketball.”
Which is a polite way of saying—why let them go to college for half an education and complete corruption?
While the memo does not explicitly mention the one-and-done rule, it has been a point of contention for a while and is the most likely issue to be addressed. Under current rules, players must be at least 19 to enter the NBA Draft. With trades of potential 2021 draft picks coming into play, the memo serves as a gentle warning to teams who may wish to reconsider the ramifications of such trades given what a rule change could do to that draft class.
