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

The group addressed the NCAA, AAU basketball, the NBA and its players' union, for contributing to "a crisis in college basketball (that) is foremost a problem of failed accountability and lax responsibility".

An additional rule that will be put in place for high school recruits and college players will allow them to now hire agents with special permission to help them make the right choice for their career paths.

Among the most significant changes are the new rules that allow undrafted players to return to school, provide financial assistance to players who leave school early and wish to return later to finish their degree, and give high school and college athletes the opporunity to be represented by an agent.

Agents can pay for meals and transportation for players and their families if the expenses are related to the agent selection process. The rules would also allow elite high school players to work with an agent if the National Basketball Association removes its one-and-done rule. The rule changes are effective immediately.

All player-agent relationships, however, must be in writing, disclosed to the NCAA and ended when the player comes back to school.

The reforms also call for more transparency around amateur events and hold university presidents and chancellors accountable for noncompliance within the athletic department. College players will also be allowed representation as soon as their seasons end if they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. "Division I", NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a teleconference with reporters Wednesday afternoon. Athletes returning to school would have to demonstrate need for assistance. However, it's also not appropriate for the NCAA to impede that pursuit, and some of these rules have previously been so outdated that they interfered with making the best decisions. "Also, schools are required to cooperate fully during NCAA investigations and take appropriate corrective action". NCAA cases now can draw upon information obtained through other entities, such as government agencies, which will speed up the process of investigating issues. "We're not in a position to try to say who gets an agent and who does not'". It's on us to restore the integrity of college basketball and continue to improve the interests of all student-athletes.
