With college basketball seemingly in an endless cycle of controversy, the NBA is looking at ways to build better relationships with high school prospects, possibly through the G-League.
The NBA is reportedly in the process of adjusting the current "one-and-done" rule that mandates players can only enter the league one year removed from the graduation year of their high school class.
The plan is to build a structure for young players seeking to enter the league.
Current NBA commissioner Adam Silver and several of his top advisers have been engaged in listening tours and information-gathering missions with an array of stakeholders for months. That has included formal meetings with the National Basketball Players Association about adjusting the so-called "one-and-done" age-limit rule. But Silver's aim is much more comprehensive than simply re-opening the door for 18-year-olds to play in the NBA, sources said.
The league is reportedly hoping to foster relationships both during and after high school, but before they are ready to enter the NBA.
