USA Basketball, NBA 'blindsided' by new NCAA agent rule

  • FGCU v UNC

Agents will have at least a limited place within the NCAA structure when it comes to college basketball. The NBA will be immersed in scouting the high school ranks once those players have an earlier target date of entering the NBA draft, and if the NCAA wants to allow a select number of high school players the opportunity to sign with agents, the belief is that NBA front offices would be most informed to cull a list.

The NCAA on Wednesday announced sweeping rule changes for basketball, including allowing players to hire an agent and participate in the NBA Draft, yet still retain eligibility. Those select players can be represented by an agent beginning July 1 before their senior year in high school, pending the end to the one-and-done rule. College players would have to request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee on their draft prospects.

The agent would have to be certified by the NCAA no later than August 2020.

Agents would be allowed to cover minimal expenses such as meals and transportation tied to meetings or workouts with pro teams.

He's not the only brewery thinking that way. "Give the tax payers a break and let them have 24 cans of beer for 24 bucks". NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said at Queen's Park on Tuesday there is no doubt Ford's plan will cost the LCBO money.

The changes reflect the recommendations made in April by the Rice Commission.

Missing in the NCAA's package of rule changes is anything to do with pay for players, a wish from many in the college sports community and the inspiration for a multitude of opinion pieces over the years.

One other notable change specifies the appointment of two independent groups to oversee the investigation of cases defined as "complex".

In addition, there have also been changes to the current recruiting rules. The NCAA now will also be able to use information obtained in outside investigations - such as the FBI - to aid in its own probes and also will now hold school presidents and chancellors personally accountable for their athletic departments following the rules. Coaches and athletics staff must now also report any income over $600 from a source outside the school, such as an apparel company.
