NBA, NCAA Officials Meet to Discuss ‘One-and-Done’ Rule

Ben Simmons thinks the one-and-done rule is silly and it seems like he isn’t the only one, as NBA commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA executive director Michele Roberts met with the new Commission on College Basketball in Washington to discuss eliminating the rule.

The rule requires U.S.-based players to be one year removed from high school before becoming eligible for the NBA draft. Players were able enter the draft straight out of high school up until the rule went into effect in 2006.

Notable players to enter the league straight out of high school included LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, and Kevin Garnett. Of course, who can forget about Kwame Brown?

Silver is considering proposing a rule similar to what is used by the MLB where the player can be drafted out of high school, but opt to head to college for two years if the team and the player himself cannot come to terms on a contract.

An interesting idea, which very well might work in the NBA.
