NBA Looks to Eliminate the “One-and-Done” Rule

The NBA is exploring avenues to address rule violations related to amateurism and preferential treatment in NCAA teams. Commissioner Adam Silver is actively investigating changes to how the NBA engages with top high school talent, as reported by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. Currently, players must be 19 years old or have spent a year out of high school before entering the league. However, it appears that the league is open to reconsidering these requirements.

The recent scandals surrounding NCAA and youth basketball have become catalysts for these potential changes. With various job opportunities within the league and the infrastructure provided by the G-League, players have alternatives to explore. Simply reducing the age requirement to 18 is not the only option on the table.

“We’re spending a lot of time on [youth basketball]. I think there is a big opportunity, on a global basis, focus on elite players in terms of better training, better fitness, so that they ultimately can be successful at the highest level.”
— Adam Silver

Commissioner Silver expressed his commitment to enhancing youth basketball during All-Star weekend. The ongoing FBI investigation into NCAA affairs has further emphasized the need for these discussions. More information is expected in the near future, potentially after the conclusion of the NCAA tournament.
