Changes coming to college basketball

Report: NBA, USA Basketball blindsided by NCAA's proposed rule changes Why NBA, USA Basketball Reportedly Were ‘Blindsided’ By New NCAA Rules

Now college basketball players can work with an NCAA-certified agent while testing the waters of declaring for the NBA draft. Now, players will be able to return to school if they are not drafted.

Boston College Heights: Andy Backstrom believes "the NCAA is defiled by corruption and hypocrisy".

The Indianapolis-based governing body for college sports announced Wednesday that its Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors had adopted a "series of significant policy and legislative changes" as part of an effort to "fundamentally" change the NCAA's structure.

NCAA will allow college players to be represented by NBPA certified agents, who must become NCAA certified by August 1, 2020, under the condition that they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. It also attempts to help the other end of the spectrum as well, allowing star players who opted to leave school early but went undrafted.

At the end of June, Foxtel had about 2.8 million subscribers, higher than past year mainly due to the launch of Foxtel Now. The net loss attributable to News Corp shareholders narrowed to $372 million in the...

For players to take advantage of this change, they would need to declare for the draft, request an undergraduate advisory committee evaluation from the National Basketball Association and be invited to participate in the National Basketball Association combine. Players must be evaluated by the Undergraduate Advisory Council prior to entering the draft.

The biggest change that affects USA Basketball is the NCAA giving it responsibility for finding top high school seniors who will be allowed to sign with agents, ESPN reported. There would not be a financial relationship between the student-athlete and the agent.

Gavitt said the NCAA met with USA Basketball, the NBA and the NBPA several times in the last three months and has another in-person meeting set for next week in NY.

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".

For these leagues the transfer window does not end until the end of the month and spending can be expected to continue. The move however irked Guardiola who labelled Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis' decision as unprofessional.

Coaches and staff members who break its rules will face more severe penalties, including post-season bans of up to five years, head coach suspensions beyond one season and potential lifetime employment show-cause orders. It said schools will now be required to report their athletics-related incomes from any source outside of the school, apparel companies included.

Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of USA Basketball said, "USA Basketball has been working with the NBA, NBPA and NCAA since April to make sure we all do the right things for our young basketball athletes".

The new rules on agents will allow, college players, after the end of any season, to be permitted to be represented by NBPA-certified agents.

Add fresh perspective and independent judgment to NCAA decision-making at the highest level of policymaking and in investigations and case resolution. NCAA cases now can draw upon information obtained through other entities, such as government agencies, which will speed up the process of investigating issues. They are willing parties in this, Gavitt said. "We're not in a position to try to say who gets an agent and who does not'".

ICBC will apply for further changes from the BC Utilities Commission, with the expected changes to take place in September 2019. The corporation would forgive one at-fault crash for customers with 20 years of driving experience.
