ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski rips NCAA for changing rules without consulting National Basketball Association

NCAA basketball changes: Undrafted players can return to school | SI.com Statement from NCAA leaders on college basketball reforms

The NCAA's rule changes include allowing players to work with an agent while declaring for the National Basketball Association draft.

- College basketball players who go undrafted by the NBA will be allowed to return to school and play as part of sweeping NCAA reforms in the wake of a corruption scandal.

According to the new rule, which would become effective if the NBA and its players association make an "expected rule change", those undrafted that participate in the NBA combine and request an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation may return to school.

Included in the announcement was a radical change allowing top high school and college players to hire agents while remaining eligible for college play.

"I think the concepts are good in theory, but someone would have to explain to me why USA Basketball gets to determine who gets to have an agent".

Trump administration moves ahead with new round of tariffs on Chinese imports
His administration confirmed that its trade assault would soon cover more than $50 billion of products from China. Washington imposed 25% duties on $34bn (£26.3bn) of Chinese goods on 6 July in response to those complaints.

They'll also be allowed to be represented by agents, in college and, for some, as high school prospects. "It's just dumb. The market would be set".

"The September 2017 announcement of a federal investigation into fraud in college basketball recruiting made it clear the NCAA needed to make significant changes - and do so quickly", the NCAA wrote on it's website.

The NCAA and its member schools are part of the broader higher education community, and today's actions renew our commitment to our core goal - preparing students for a lifetime of opportunity.

Moreover, with the level that head Texas basketball coach Shaka Smart has recruited at in recent years, the Horns could see these rule changes impact more immensely talented commits to the program. Coaches and athletics staff must now also report any income over $600 from a source outside the school, such as an apparel company.

"These changes will promote integrity in the game, strengthen accountability and prioritize the interests of student-athletes over every other factor", NCAA leaders said in joint statement. "They deserve nothing less". "It doesn't fix anything".
