Everyone knows the Utah Jazz have started their rebuild/tank job and the Jazz are in draft allocation mode. There is one component which to my knowledge, has not been addressed. That is the current "one-and-done" rule which requires players to be either 19 years-old or be 1 year removed from high school to be eligible for the NBA draft. The NBA's CBA agreement officially ends the summer of 2023-24. Adam Silver has went on record as saying, he would prefer to remove the one-and-done rule and will be looking at removing it during the next CBA negotiations stating:
"I think that [removing the one-and done rule] would be the right thing to do and I am hopeful that that's a change we make in this next collective bargaining cycle, which will happen in the next couple years."
If my understanding is correct, this would effect the class of 2025 (somebody double check my work), effectively allowing High School players that would normally have to wait until 2025 to recategorize into the 2024 NBA draft leading to a loaded 2024 draft and effectively doubling the number of NBA stars as High School Players declare for the draft instead of a 1 year transition in college or G-league. This also would result in a more difficult to evaluate 2025 NBA draft (where we have multiple picks).
Therefore, the Jazz should be effectively trying to get as many picks in the 2024 NBA draft as possible and valuing the 2024 year more than any other year. Unfortunately, the Jazz don't have any other teams 2024 FRP and owe owe their own to the Thunder if 11+. In contrary, the Thunder own their own FRP, Clippers FRP, Rockets FRP if 5+ and Utah's FRP if 11+. After 2024, the Thunder will likely have their All-Stars and can transition out of rebuild mode. Can Utah move our last few valuable resources for the 2024 NBA draft?
