NBA reportedly creates new temporary rules for teams regarding draft prospects

The NBA has reportedly created some new temporary rules for teams to abide by regarding draft prospects.

According to CBS college basketball reporter Jon Rothstein, NBA team interviews with draft-eligible players for the 2020 Draft will be limited to two hours per week for each player and four hours total for each player.

Rothstein says NBA teams are further prohibited from attending workouts and sharing video of players that occurred after April 6, 2020.

It’s clear that the NBA is trying to create an equal playing field among all teams as they go through the draft prospect scouting process. They don’t want teams feeling like they need to risk traveling amid the coronavirus pandemic and are trying to discourage teams from doing so to gain advantages over their competition. This is similar to what the NFL has done with their pre-draft process.
