The Morris Rule

It took a while, but the basketball world is finally taking notice of the exploits of Kentucky's big man. And included in that group is the NBA.

Adrian Wojnarowski, NBA columnist for Yahoo, posted a new piece in which he talks about Randolph Morris' NBA future and how his unique circumstance might play out.

The quick version is that because Morris went undrafted after declaring for the draft after his freshman season, a loophole in the NCAA's eligibility rules means he could return to college, providing his did not hire an agent, but would not be able to go through the draft process again.

This creates a strange situation where Morris is, right now, a free agent. Technically, he could sign with any team at any time. While he has vowed to finish the season, the possiblity raises interesting questions about public relations, eligibility and the value of staying in school.
