I have a son intrested in joining the D-league next year and I understand he might be one credit short. I understand its a tryout. So help me out can he still tryout without a High School diploma?

I doubt it matters but as will be the running theme here, I wouldn't support him doing anything until HS is done.

You can get by without college but without HS, you are in a world of hurt.

I like how everyone is trying to give him advice. Honestly what I would do if I were you is go to the D-league homepage, look for the section on the front page entitled D-League Headlines, in that section the latest D-league tryouts should be listed. Then their should be an email or phone number to schedule your tryout, and when you call them just ask.

Here's the list man: http://www.nba.com/dleague/nba_dleague_individual_tryouts_2012.html

This is all I can find

A player is eligible to be signed to a D-League contract if he is or will be at least 18 years old during the calendar year in which the D-League draft is held and his high school class has graduated. Also, the player may not have attended college in the United States in the academic year that takes place during the season covered by his D-League contract.

So while it doesn't say he has to graduate, he can attempt a try out until his class has graduated, so if he is class of 2014 then he would need to wait till they graduate. Also tryouts are held in Oct.

i guess him saying "so help me out.." was basically him saying "i'm not here for advice, just to share a story".

"So help me out can he still tryout without a High School diploma?" is asking for advice on parenting? That's rhetorical. Don't answer. Your comprehension is atrocious. He's asking a question about if a high school dropout can play D-league basketball. That's not asking for parenting tips. Quit being a dick.

A bunch of teenagers who don't even have a sex life giving parenting advice? I guess health class teaches you more than it use to, huh?

if my kid is living under my roof for free i dont care if he/she is 18 or not... He/She is going to school. If your son thinks he can do what he wants just cuz hes 18 tell him to think again lol... Tell him to finish school... If he didnt get any scholarship offers for basketball why does he think he could make a D-League team?

I'm pretty sure you need to have a passing grade to be eligible for a scholarship. For all we know his kid is a beast but is ineligible to compete due to a failing grade.
