Default Foreign players in the NBA draft

I think that if foreign players want to enter the NBA draft, they should be 100% committed. if you enter the draft, you should already have a buyout negotiated with your old team and you should be obligated to go to the team that selects you. This ricky rubio saga is crap. how can a rookie threaten a team that is going to select him by saying that if he doesnt get his way he will go back to europe? the team then has to re-evaluate who they will pick etc. if they pick him and he goes back to europe they lose out on a top 3 pick. or if they pick him and he cannot get out of his contract then they lose out.

it should be the teams choice if they want to keep you overseas or bring you over, not the players choice.

what do you think?
