A prospect may enter the professional draft at one of 3 points: 1- Immediately out of high school 2- After completing either year at a 2-year college (JUCO) 3- After completing his junior year at a 4-year college The advantage of this system is that the elite talents who couldn't care less about a college education (or have families in need) are able to immediately start earning a wage. The colleges benefit by knowing that the players who choose an amateur path will be in the program at least 3 years. The main drawbacks seem to be that it pushes some talent into the JUCO ranks and that it does limit a player's ability to capitalize in the marketplace if his stock soars during his freshman or sophomore year. Should the NCAA, NBA and NBA Players Association move things to the baseball model? Thoughts?
