Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, never short on ideas or opinions, has another one. Take the one-and-done college basketball stars out of the NCAA and put them in the NBA Development League.

Cuban spoke to ESPNDallas.com's Tim MacMahon about what he calls the hypocritical system the NCAA currently has in place for student athletes and how the problem is compounded by the NBA's 19-year-old or one year removed from high school age limit.

“The NCAA rules are so hypocritical, there's absolutely no reason for a kid to go [to college], because he's not going to class [and] he's actually not even able to take advantage of all the fun because the first semester he starts playing basketball,” Cuban said. “So if the goal is just to graduate to the NBA or be an NBA player, go to the D-League.”

Currently, the age limit for the NBA D-League is 18, so Cuban's idea could work under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement. Cuban added that he'd prefer the NBA to make its age limit 21 — new NBA commissioner Adam Silver has said he's like to raise it to 20 – but in the meantime feels the D-League will better prepare players for the NBA than spending one year in college. He suggested a system where the NBA covers tuition costs for players in the D-League to still attend school, but not play college basketball.

“We can get rid of all the hypocrisy and improve the education. If the whole plan is just to go to college for one year maybe or just the first semester, that's not a student-athlete. That's ridiculous... You don't have to pretend. We don't have to pretend. A major college has to pretend that they're treating them like a student-athlete, and it's a big lie and we all know it's a big lie.”
