    Only if Lucca Played in Australia

    Just saw this on espn.com, didn't see it posted anywhere on here. It mentions Lucca in the article.

    Then we would only have about half as many threads a week to post on.

    Re: Only if Lucca Played in Australia

    The NCAA rules against foreign players are now crystal clear: If you receive any money, sign a contract or play on a team considered professional (i.e., has a pro on it), you're subject to a penalty even if you don't receive money.
    I know this has probably already been answered, but does this include the summer leagues that might have a "pro" on them?

    Yes, kind of.

    One of the many articles that have been posted here about the topic had that issue brought up. According to it, the NCAA's stance is that since the pro isn't getting his/her income from that particular "summer" league, then they aren't a pro because of that league.

    Now, if the pro was getting paid to play in that "summer" league - it would be an issue. But they're not, they're getting paid ONLY to play in the NBA. Other leagues, whether or not they are "told to" by their franchise, aren't part of their income.

    Or so the logic goes.....

    I understand what you are saying, but the rule is confusing. Probably on purpose.

    I think that was kind of the point the author of the article was getting at - I don't remember which article it was.

    Alot of these pros play in the leagues to promote them, to work on their own game - perhaps at the direction of their NBA franchise. So it's highly unlikely that they're not playing in some "professional" capacity.

    To put the fine point on it - the general attitude was that these are American leagues, and those are European. That's all the NCAA considers and that was the long and short of the article. European players are getting screwed, American players not so much.

    That's what I find funny about the Aussie article. It sounds like the NCAA just accepts them if they come from that league, no questions asked.
