My opinion is yet completely unformed, but there is good and bad to this. Getting the one-and-dones out of college basketball is probably a good thing, and while it won't end corruption in college basketball, it may reduce it.
Some players don't want to be in college or don't have the aptitude for it. They should have other options.
On the other hand, a G League player not under a direct NBA two-way contract makes (last time I checked) between around $25,000 and $35,000 a year. A D-I college scholarship is worth between $25,000 and $50,000 a year, plus hookers, strippers and any other money (cars or houses) slipped under the table by boosters, agents and the like.
