Report: NBA agents refusing to submit to NCAA certification program

NBA logo

The NCAA’s new rules guiding which agents are allowed to represent college athletes has run into another giant roadblock.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, NBA agents are sending a letter informing the NCAA that they will not be registering for the NCAA’s agent certification program.

The NCAA had proposed numerous rules, including one that NBA agents would have to register for a certification program in order to represent student-athletes without them losing eligibility. NBA agents are essentially refusing to play that game, stating that the NCAA should not have regulatory power over who can and can’t represent a student-athlete when agents already have NBPA certification.

This is far from the first issue the NCAA’s proposed regulations have run into. In fact, they had to withdraw one of the certification requirements due to widespread outcry. Now agents are outright refusing to take place in that certification, meaning the whole process has reached a stalemate.
