NBA Commissioner Ready to Scrap League’s One-and-Done Rule

The NBA’s one-and-done rule has been a topic of discussion for quite some time now and League commissioner Adam Silver believes that it is time to scrap it

“I’m not here to say we have a problem,” Silver said. “And I love where the league is right now. But I think we can create a better system.”

If the rule is to be abolished, the NBA will allow high school players to enter the Draft following their grade 12 year. Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Kevin Garnett are all high-profile names who bypassed college to enter the Draft straight out of high school.

“My personal view is that we’re ready to make that change,” Silver said. “It won’t come immediately. But when I’ve weighed the pros and cons, given that Condoleezza Rice and her commission have recommended to the NBA that those one-and-done players now come directly into the league and in essence the college community is saying `We do not want those players anymore,’ I think that tips the scale in my mind.”

The current rule in place prohibits amateur prospects to enter the draft before their age 19 year meaning most kids take a year in college before entering the NBA Draft.

Silver expects the rule to be scrapped by the time the 2021 NBA Draft rolls around.
