NIL may be death knell of G League Ignite team or going overseas....

....if you are an elite player under 19 that doesnt want to do to college. Ignite is the G league team made up of all players that are not draft eligible (under 19 years old) A lot of the typical one-and-done's played there last year and a lot more were going to play this year, but now with NIL $ available to matriculate at the blue bloods that is where they will likely go for their 1 year before the draft. Way more exposure playing at Kentucky or Kansas than in the G League and Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour will be throwing 7 figure deals at the top kids in each class probably before they even graduate HS
