The NBA's one-and-done rule could finally be reaching an end. Commissioner Adam Silver has said in the past he's NBA-level talent to wait a year before turning pro.and it's been under heavy scrutiny ever since its introduction. Many incoming players feel it is unfair to force
The rule has been put under an even bigger spotlight with athe NBA put an end to the rule. With so much pressure to end the rule, and the NBA not seeing much gain from it, a change could be in the future. However, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, that change won't be until 2020 at the earliest.
The NBA and NBPA conversations on eliminating the one-and-done draft rule -- which would allow high school seniors to enter the NBA -- are centered on the 2020 Draft as the earliest possible date for change, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) April 25, 2018
It feels like everybody has a reason to want one-and-done to end at this point. College basketball hasn't gained much from players spending less than a year in college with full intentions of jumping to the NBA immediately after. The prospects themselves have to either spend a year without payment in college or play one year of pro ball internationally. The NBA isn't getting more developed or mature players with the one-year wait.
One-and-done has outlived the little usefulness it had. It's time to end the rule and allow the players to make the decision themselves on when they should enter the NBA.
