NCAA makes rule change, allows basketball players to have agent

Change is coming to college basketball.

All player-agent relationships, however, must be in writing, disclosed to the NCAA and ended when the player comes back to school.

These changes will promote integrity in the game, strengthen accountability and prioritize the interests of student-athletes over every other factor. "Things have changed. I'm not sure what's improved", one coach said.
