A minor league system would be the way to go, just like baseball 3 or 4 levels, paid for by the NBA. But would the big time colleges accept that they would not be getting the stud players they get now. I would love to see true student athletes in the college game instead of what we currently have. But if their profits dropped the NCAA would not accept that. AAU is not the root of the problem, AAU got big because the HS basketball programs were not doing a very good job of developing and enabling players to go on to the college game.
