Adam Silver says NCAA scandal is disconcerting to say the least

Adam Silver says NCAA scandal is disconcerting to say the least
Published On: Fri, Sep 29
Jun 23, 2016; New York, NY, USA; Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot greets NBA commissioner Adam Silver after being selected as the number twenty-four overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft at Barclays Center. Mandatory Credit: Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

So far, the bribery scandal rocking NCAA mens basketball has not directly touched the NBA. Yes, former NBA Rookie of the Year Chuck Person was one of the people arrested, and prominent NBA agent Andy Miller reportedly had his office raided by the FBI (one of the people arrested in the probe was a former employee of the firm, but he had been fired previously). Still, the scandal has not landed on the leagues doorstep. Yet.

At his press conference Thursday after the NBA owners meetings, Silver was asked about the scandal.

But I would say both as a fan of college basketball and of course from my capacity as Commissioner of the NBA, its disconcerting to say the least, when you see those kind of charges being made.

I think as I step back and look more at the larger basketball community, there are things that weve been doing over the last several years to become more involved in youth basketball I would say Ive watched sort of whats been happening in college basketball, and maybe at the end of the day, its not so surprising that the incentives become skewed. The amount of money is astronomical in terms of whats being generated by these programs, whats at stake for these young players coming into the NBA.
