NCAA makes big changes regarding NBA Draft - KVOA | KVOA.com | Tucson, Arizona

Report: NBA, USA Basketball blindsided by NCAA's proposed rule changes

At face value, the new rules that take effect in 2019 don't appear to combat the level of corruption which spurred this spring's FBI investigation into college basketball.

"Either way, college basketball will continue to be successful".

Dan Gavitt, the NCAA's vice president of of men's basketball, said USA Basketball and the NBA were involved early on with the NCAA as the parties worked through the process. "But I think we can create a better system".

Student-Athletes were able to "test the waters" of the National Basketball Association after time in College but were not allowed to return to school "if" they signed with an agent.

For investigating and adjudicating complex cases involving rules violations, the NCAA has appointed to two independent groups, the Complex Case Unit and the Independent College Sports Adjudication Panel, to oversee and resolve complex cases, such as academic misconduct, major penalties or adversarial behaviour.

The NCAA will now permit underclassmen to join the draft, complete the combine then go back to school if they are not drafted.

The NBA also balked at the NCAA's assumption it would lower the draft age to 18.

Parker Solar Probe launch delayed until Sunday

And no, UTEP wouldn't have had Vince Hunter if this policy was in place before the 2015 season, despite him not being drafted.

The number of official visits (campus visits paid for by the university) a player can take increased from five to 15 over a multi-year period.

Since all of this was caused by outside influences - mostly apparel companies - and their impact on players and programs, the NCAA addressed that, too.

NCAA will allow college players to be represented by NBPA certified agents, who must become NCAA certified by August 1, 2020, under the condition that they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. The agent agreements must be in writing and will be terminated when the student enrols or returns to college.

There's many questions surrounding this that are left unanswered. High school players must be identified as an elite senior prospect by USA Basketball. How many players will get this recognition under their name? Representatives will be permitted to pay for meals and transportation for players, including their families, during the selection process, as well as for meetings with pro teams, if changes are made to existing agent acts and state laws.

For example, let's say the Miners snag an "elite senior prospect" out of high school. Also, collegiate prospects will also have the ability to hire agents.

While many agree the reforms are a step in the right direction, it is unclear how effective they will be. If UTEP actively pursues some of these players, the staff might have to not only recruit the player, but also recruit his agent. "I'll just leave it at that". The only players that are eligible for this are student athletes that attended school for two years before leaving. According to the Associated Press, Division 1 programs must provide scholarships for players who return to school.
