The NBA doesn't even consider the players to have any say or right in it.
see this is moronic. why would you make a player eligible if they have no intention of coming over. problem #1. this rule needs to be changed.
i guess now i can understand rubio's issue. my understanding was that he himself entered the draft, then decided that if memphis chooses him then he will remain overseas. i was not aware that foreign players are entered into the draft regardless of if they intend to go to the NBA or not. stupid stupid rule.
