I realize the NBA has recently amended its rules with a lower-age limit for draftees/signees, but if they continue to raid college progs, they're gonna lose their free "farm system". Also, the quality of college basketball overall will suffer. Why should they continue to invest time & money into top HS players if they're only gonna be there for one year or so? The Continental League and the other "minor leagues" just don't have the coaches, staff, & trainers anywhere near the level of most college progs. This gets back to a prob with the NCAA overall...What's the harm for a college athlete signing with a pro team, but not playing nor practicing with that team, nor receiving one dime in pay in any form, nor even wearing anything close to the pro team's colors or logo unless they happen to resemble his/her college team's colors...while continuing his/her college career? This creates a win-win situation for both college and pro. The college could have the assurance of that player's services for a full 4 years, while the pros would receive a well-developed, more mature player.
