Last week a major shockwave was sent through the entire world of basketball, as high school standout Jalen Green announced that he would forgo playing basketball in college and head directly to the NBA’s G League, a decision that could potentially redefine how young athletes transition to their professional careers in America.

To gain perspective on this game-changing announcement and what this means for other student athletes, Chris Haynes speaks with Green’s agent, Aaron Goodwin. Chris and Aaron also discuss Green’s similarities to Goodwin’s other client, Damian Lillard, how Green stacks up against other top draft prospects, Goodwin’s early-career work with the Williams sisters and the NBA’s plans to return to play.
