The NBA G League is prepared to offer an alternative path for elite prospects who are not draft eligible and star high school basketball players who would likely be "one-and-done" players in the NCAA ranks. In addition to the six-figure deal, they will also be given the benefit of an NBA-like infrastructure for training and other off-court development programs "geared toward facilitating and accelerating their transition to the pro game", league president Malcolm Turner said.
The vast majority of prospects enrol in a college programme, while some play overseas for a year and return to the United States to be drafted. Per ESPN's Jonathan Givony, the league plans to hire a program director to oversee and further develop this professional path, while still planning to potentially lower its age limit so as to eliminate the one-and-done rule by 2022.
"The broader basketball community has called for the NBA to enhance our G League offerings", Turner told ESPN.
The NBA G League, the organisation's second-tier league, will offer $US125,000 ($174,850) "select contracts" for a five-month season to elite players who are at least 18 years old. "We believe this is an answer to that call".
The NBA has unveiled a new career path for elite, young basketball stars that could persuade them not to play in Australia's NBL, Europe or with a USA college team. With many recruits already having committed for the Class of 2019, it'll be hard to imagine the G-League will opt to make the move full-time that quickly.

"We appreciate the NBA's decision to provide additional opportunities for those who would like to pursue their dream of playing professionally, Emmert said in statement".
NBA G League Select Contracts are designed for year-round professional growth and will include opportunities for basketball development, life skills mentorship and academic scholarship.
Athletes will be restricted to playing only one season on a G League Select Contract, after which point they will become automatically eligible for that year's National Basketball Association draft. It will take some time for a baseline to be established for what prospects can be expected to produce against this level of competition.
Under existing rules players must be 19, or one year removed from high school, before entering the NBA Draft.
