Adam Silver says 'one-and-done' rule could be gone by 2022 NBA Draft


The Association liked the rule because it allowed teams to get a look at players in a more organized fashion before using draft picks on them.


The NBA also liked to say this helped protect players who might flame out and could use a year boosting their draft stock and growing their basketball abilities, a point that is debatable.


The NCAA wants to keep the restriction in place because it profits off universities’ ability to unfairly compensate athletes with regard to their market value.


NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has made clear he thinks the controversial one-and-done rule is no longer good policy, and he said Thursday at an event in Washington that the 2022 draft likely will allow the best high school players to jump straight into the NBA rather than playing a single season of college before turning pro.


Silver also said that he felt criminal proceedings, as well as his own understanding surrounding the recruiting of college basketball players, has swayed his opinion on whether the one-and-done rule should be abolished.


It doesn’t seem as though Silver would set a public date in this fashion without it being something that had a likely chance of becoming a reality.
