With the fall of Big Baller Brand taking place there has been a question of whether the NCAA should allow former JBA players regain their lost eligibility. Some former JBA players have decided to move on to other professional leagues, including the NBA and NBA G League(If they are drafted or picked up). Jordan Ray and Deon Lyle have declared for the NBA draft, many former players have tried out for the G League, and Harrison Reiger is even playing in El Salvador.
Some positive news amid all the negativity. Chicago Ballers G of the JBA League, Harrison Rieger tells me he has been in El Salvador training and preparing for the season that starts next month. He's excited to continue his professional basketball career.— Brandon Williams (@TalkinWithFresh) March 26, 2019
With only a small percentage of former JBA players moving on to professional leagues, the NCAA should consider giving them another shot at eligibility. While it is unlikely that it will happen, it could give kids a second chance.
Shout out to my brother @ABtheHero for taking what I started a step further and putting some action in starting a petition. Help these young men from the JBA move on with their lives. Comment when done. 💯https://t.co/EBZhAYZCHM— Brandon Williams (@TalkinWithFresh) March 27, 2019
While there has been a petition started its very unlikely that these players will get a shot at NCAA. They will probably have to look at a pro future similar to the way Harrison Reiger has playing in El Salvador, they will need to work their way up from the bottom in hopes of playing in the NBA one day.
The JBA is most likely over with because Lonzo Ball and Alan Foster are no longer partnered, so all of the players who made a name for themselves in the league will have to start new, so what do you think, should the NCAA give the JBA players a chance?
