The NBA is set to discuss the possibility of changing the rules that determine a players draft eligibility coming out of high school. The NBA appears to be leaning towards pushing it to 20 years old. Others want it brought back down to 18, and to institute a system similar to what baseball has in place.
For those who feel that high school players aren’t ready to make the jump into the professional game, their eyes just lit up.
Playing in a Drew League game, two players found themselves in isolation. That’s when NBA star Demar DeRozan decided to take top ranked recruit Michael Bagley III to school.
Seemingly without effort, DeRozan dances around Bagley III, eventually getting him to commit on a pump fake which ended with the high school stud on the ground.
DeRozan looked like he was sleepwalking through the entire game and still ended up with an impressive stat line.
Meanwhile, Bagley was easily the best player on the court that doesn’t play against LeBron James and Kyrie Irving several times a year. Bagley currently holds an offer from every major program in the country.
Schools like Duke, Kansas and Kentucky have Bagley as the top target on all of their recruiting boards.
