Recently ESPN aired segments on the first high schooler to seek a contract from a Euroleague team in order to reach eligibility to enter the NBA draft. What are your thoughts on the NBA's policy?

If I owned a NBA team the best policy would be the current policy cuz you get to see how good these players are against better competition. It also allows for guys to go to Europe, sign a decent contract and then come here. However, if the Euroleague teams started having minimum length contracts and these guys turned out to be really good, well I think they would start getting a ton of buyout money, or maybe transfer fees like hockey and soccer. and then international players would be excluded from the nba draft and would just be allowed to sign with which ever team pays the most I guess. Or maybe there will be an International free agency.

Out of high school for sure. Why can someone prevent a guy from making millions of dollars to feed his family? If you think you can make it, and an NBA team agrees and drafts you, there's no reason you shouldn't be allowed to make the move right out of high school. Such a dumb rule.

at 18. You're considered an "adult" then. So as long as you're 18 by draft night, I think you should be allowed in.

I agree. If you're an 'adult', you should be able to make the decision to be in the draft or go to college/university.
