One-And-Done Rule Could Be Done By 2021

The NBA on Friday sent teams a memo indicating that “eligibility rules” for the draft may shift as early as 2021 (but no earlier) as the league reviews issues “related to player development and the corruption investigation in college basketball.”

The memo does not mention the one-and-done rule by name, but it is meant to remind teams that the league and the players union could agree to scrap one-and-done before the expiration of the current collective bargaining deal in 2024 — and perhaps well before then, sources say. The memo says that, as of now, the league does not expect changes in draft eligibility rules to take place at any time “prior to the 2021 or 2022 draft.”

If such a change were to happen, it could create a single draft loaded with the best prospects from two consecutive high school classes.

The league will discuss the issue further during annual meetings at Summer League in Las Vegas, the memo says.
