The one-and-done era of college basketball has allowed fans to witness highly talented players in the college ranks, but it has also taken a toll on the quality of the NBA product.

  • They forfeit their collegiate eligibility, but will be eligible to enter the draft after one year.
  • Players that decide to go the college route must stay in school for two years.

Could this improve quality of play in both college and the pros?
