NCAA's new proposed rules blindsides NBA, USA Basketball officials

NCAA basketball changes: Undrafted players can return to school | SI.com

The NCAA unveiled several rule changes Wednesday, in hopes of eradicating - or more realistically, reducing - the significant amount of corruption, which recently stained the sport and was exposed a year ago through an FBI investigation.

The NCAA attracted a lot of attention Wednesday by announcing that they would permit a pool of "elite" high school and college talent to hire agents.

Due to the clamor that the National Basketball Association should abolish the one-and-done rule stating that prospects straight out of high school are not deemed eligible to declare for the draft, the league has been moving in that direction.

In addition, college players that enter the NBA Draft will be allowed to return to school if they go undrafted.

High schoolers identified by USA Basketball as elite prospects will be allowed to have an agent starting July 1 before their senior year.

As US slaps on fresh tariffs, China fires back
The US and China have been trying to restart high-level talks that broke off after Trump followed through on his tariff threats. The tariffs will come into effect simultaneously with the U.S. ones, at 12.01 pm in Beijing, according to the statements.

College players also will be allowed to form relationships with NCAA-certified agents if they request an evaluation from the undergraduate advisory committee.

University presidents and chancellors will be held "personally accountable" for any rule-breaking by their athletic departments. However, athletes can only officially visit a school once per year.

Some of the changes go into effect immediately.

Particularly, the NCAA has made some changes to how it will handle the NBA Draft process on its end. "I don't think it addresses any of the issues in college basketball". A new NCAA fund will help pay these expenses for schools unable to meet those requirements. The NCAA says that will save time since investigators would no longer have to independently confirm those details, which could apply to the current corruption case with federal investigators having access to information through subpoenas and wiretaps - tools the NCAA doesn't possess. Coaches and athletics staff must now also report any income over $600 from a source outside the school, such as an apparel company. Agents often get a bad rap as pragmatists and manipulators; they serve a necessary and appropriate role in this process. "I think the changes we've adopted. will have a positive impact on college basketball and more importantly perhaps on the student-athletes that compete in collegiate basketball".
