NCAA makes rule change, allows basketball players to have agent
11 August 2018, 01:57 | Tracey Rhodes
These changes will also make the NCAA investigations and infractions process more efficient, setting stronger penalties for schools or individuals who violate NCAA rules to deter future violations and bringing independent investigators to the table to make decisions and enforce rules. The NCAA also states that "Division I schools will be required to pay for tuition, fees and books for basketball players who leave school and return later to the same school to earn their degree".
The NCAA on Wednesday announced sweeping rule changes for basketball, including allowing players to hire an agent and participate in the NBA Draft, yet still retain eligibility.
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.
New N. Korea missiles unlikely to doom talks, experts say
The 55 boxes, draped in the blue and white flag of the United Nations, are each small enough to be carried in one person's arms. Still, the initial "field forensic review" indicates that the "remains are what North Korea said they were", Byrd said.
Agents would be allowed to cover minimal expenses such as meals and transportation tied to meetings or workouts with pro teams.
Rice said the vast majority of schools play by the rules but a "win at all cost" approach by others who have been inadequately punished must be changed. The agents will have to be certified through the NCAA.
The reforms also call for more transparency around amateur events and hold university presidents and chancellors accountable for noncompliance within the athletic department.
Manchester City announce second signing
The Blues failed to defend their Premier League title last season, with Pep Guardiola winning the league in historic fashion. There's always going to be stories when players do well. "But maybe this season, finally you demand that they win .
Last month in Las Vegas, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said, "My personal view is that we're ready to make that change, [but] that it won't come immediately". College players would have to request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee on their draft prospects. "I don't think it addresses any of the issues in college basketball".
That agreement must end if the player returns to school.
The NCAA also created new rules on when college coaches can see athletes. 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. It's on us to restore the integrity of college basketball and continue to improve the interests of all student-athletes.
