"Regardless of any change on age eligibility, we, the NBA, believe we should be more involved in the development of elite basketball players, " Behrens told The NBA's current rules require USA players to be 19 years old and one year removed from high school, which has led to many elite high school players using college basketball as a one-year waypoint before turning pro.

On Wednesday this week (Aug. 8), the NCAA announced several rule adaptations for college basketball.

This declaration, which has neither been ratified by the NBA or USA Basketball, is contingent on the league modifying its one-and-done policy, and frankly seems like a lot of extra work for two parties that didn't ask for it, but one organization that will suprisingly be effected very negatively by this potential rule has to be the Philadelphia 76ers.

Jim Tooley, the CEO of USA Basketball, told by phone from the Bahamas, "Our universe of junior national team players isn't every pro prospect and even if we expand the pool, we don't include worldwide players".

In terms of agents, the changes are as much about transparency and offering a legitimate avenue for communication or advice that previously could've taken place in the shadows — and raised the likelihood of attracting unscrupulous characters. The agents can cover minimal costs, such as meals and travel expenses related to gauging interest in professional opportunities.

National Basketball Association policy states that players must be one year removed from high school to be eligible for the draft.

When the Sixers made the controversial decision to trade everyone's favorite former Villanova Wildcat Mikal Bridges to the Phoenix Suns for the 16th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and a 2021 unprotected first-round pick from the Miami Heat, it was always going to be a gamble, but the last week has virtually decimated any chance of this deal looking great for the Sixers moving forward.
