Going To The Pros From High School Still A Possibility For Basketball Stars

Brandon Jennings is an amazing athlete. He is one of the top five high school basketball players and is committed to play this coming season for the Arizona Wildcats. The problem is that he doesn’t necessarily want to play college ball. He wants to get paid and considers the new rule making kids wait a year after high school to be eligible for the NBA draft a disadvantage.

For those reasons Jennings is also a pioneer. There are loopholes to almost everything and Jennings may have found a whopper. Playing basketball overseas would give him the opportunity to develop his skills for another year while getting paid at the same time. The thought is simple yet almost genius. Why haven’t more people pursued this option?
