Even if you say athletes can make income on endorsements and non-university related activities, it doesn't address coaches paying recruits to go to their school.

It sounds like Adam Silver may actually be thinking about using the NBA's G League properly, which is as a developmental league for players not-quite-ready for the NBA. Not just a league for has-beens or guys who never had a shot. Get rid of one and done NCAA players who don't care about college in the first place and put 'em in the G League. There's no reason the NBA couldn't have tiers of developmental leagues like MLB. Hell, they could have the G League here and another developmental league in Europe and it would probably do well.
