NBA Commissioner Wants Draft Rules Amended
OAKLAND (AP) — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver wants the NBA's draft-eligibility rules changed. To what, he isn't sure.
Less than a month away from a draft where about 20 players who completed just one year of college will be welcomed into the league, Silver expects the so-called "one-and-done" rule to be modified — somehow — before too long. But in saying that, Silver also acknowledged that even he isn't certain what makes the most sense going forward.
Speaking before Game 1 of the NBA Finals, Silver says the current system is "not working for anyone." Silver says college coaches and athletic directors are among those not pleased. And he says NBA teams realize the players coming into the league are not getting the kind of training they would expect to see.
