The NCAA is outlining new certification requirements for agents to represent players testing the NBA draft waters.
Agents must possess a bachelor's degree, NBPA certification for at least three consecutive years, professional liability insurance and completion of an in-person exam taken at the NCAA office in Indianapolis in early November.
The requirement of a bachelor's degree has led some to refer to it as the "Rich Paul Rule." Paul began working with LeBron James while in college and didn't graduate.
According to the new NCAA criteria, Paul wouldn't be able to represent underclassmen testing the NBA draft waters.
James weighed in on the new certification requirements via social media Tuesday.
