    Default OT: College Players entering NBA

    Seems the lengthening of people going to college is going to happen. Do people agree with this? IF so, how long do you think they should play in college?

    I think they should play 2 years in college. I think that allows the NBA to evaluate the talent better. It would help college basketball with more stars staying.

    I'd say 3 years, honestly.

    I would like to see a variation on the MLB system. Players could go straight to the NBA out of high school but if they enroll in college they are ineligible for the NBA for 2 years (as opposed to 3 for MLB).

    If you are old enough to die in war, you are old enough to play in the NBA. The league has had high schoolers in the past with mixed success. Just like 19, 20, 21 year old rookies. There is no reason to believe teams don't learn from mistakes and draw the same conclusions and concerns. To me, this is a move by the university lobby to create more revenue. Make NCAA great again, type people.

    Roll back the 2005 CBA changes on eligibility. But Silver is a crook, I don't expect him to do it.

    I like this idea. Straight outta high school or stay for 2.

    I think one and done hurts the college game more than the nba. Just let players be draft eligible after high school. Either make them stay 4 years and get a degree or dont force them to come at all.

    They should play two to three years. Not just one year. Get experience and character development.

    Definitely not one and done. I agree with letting them jump right out of high school or making them stay in college longer.

    This is what I'd aim for.

    Though eventually I'd make it so they'd have to report to the G League first if they don't go to college. Teams could call them up after a certain point in the season.

    I like the baseball rule regarding high school athletes. If a major league team wants to draft a kid out of high school they can but if the kid doesn't want to accept the offer he cannot be signed until what would be his junior year in college. Personally, I do not think basketball players should be signed out of high school because they are not nearly developed enough to play on a professional level. Hell, very few 1st year college players can play with the pros. I think that right now, college basketball is pretty much a joke when you look at it. These kids coming in do not even go to class most of the time. It is a joke over-all.

    Yea, I think this isn't a bad idea. Players that make the jump from HS to the NBA aren't necessarily fully contributing right away and need to adjust to the much higher level of play. G league would provide a nice bridge. I would still allow the players that jump from HS to the NBA to participate in summer league, and maybe even the preseason.
