The union favors eliminating the current CBA's ban on players straight from high-school, but says that the issue has not yet been a big factor. Hunter explains the union's proposal: "I don't know if there has been much discussion. Our position is that players should be incentivized to stay in school if that's what they want. Let's reduce the duration of the rookie scale. For every year a guy stays in school, a year comes off the rookie scale. So if a kid decides to stay for four years, he'd come in, maybe spend a year in the league, then he'd be an unrestricted free agent." ' This sounds like a really bad idea from the teams perspective. The problem with preps to pros was guys entering the league too early and taking up valuable roster spots. If the above change is enacted then there would be incentive to draft younger players not older more experienced players due to the shorter rookie contract. A better idea would be to add a multpier to the rookie wage depending on your experience. For example 0 bonus from HS., 10K for 1 yer colloge, 30K for 2 years, 60K for three years and 100K for four years of college added to the currecnt rookie wage. It could work and make kids realize that staying longer in school gets them drafted higher and more pay. Your thoughts?
