Ehh. Not really. He graduated a year ago and could have been college eligible this past season. Stayed at the prep school because of his brother or something

I don't know how much it will change. It was a really unique situation.

But now guys don't have to go to college. They can go to camps, academies, or just train

See Jennings and Mudiay. They went and got paid for a year

As Gibby said, they didn't have to college already.

Look at golf, tennis and hockey with these young professionals playing and making money. You come to basketball, they want to make all these rule changes. Stop it! These guys would go to college and play for four years if you paid them. College sports(basketball, football) is a big racket.

The article pegs him late first. I think he goes late lottery.

Late 1st - 2nd round 、he's going to be a 3-4 year project

They should pay them in college and do away with the draft.

Then all the good players would only sign with a few teams.

Too much hype on centers just ask the Sixers. Last center that's legit is Towns, before him was AD but he's more of a PF. Maker is your typical overrated draft pick

The salary cap still exists and there could be limits on how many you can sign. Also players want to play so they will want to go where out will be best for them. But there is one thing I can guarantee ... Tanking will be over, and every team will be as good as they possibly can be.

Doing away with the draft is not a bad idea. It needs to be studied quick and in a hurry. It would fix the tanking issue. But, we also know the NCAA Division I would be ruined....they definitely need a better system than the one that's in place right now. Pay the college players a stipend per game.

Yep. I dont think people will follow in Thon's footsteps. Far more hs studs will continue to go to college or overseas.

All they have to do is let them make money off there own autographs. Its there birth right. Its ridiculous that a player can't sign autographs for money.

If you limit each team to adding 2 rookies out of college (or hs) each year there will be plenty of people to return to college. Teams could add any other players they need from minor leagues. Also with the very low rookie contracts nowadays it's not like some teams will be able to outspend other teams.
