Stan Van Gundy, the Detroit Pistons head coach, came up with a novel idea to eliminate tanking in the NBA and that is to eliminate the NBA Draft altogether.

Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy dislikes tanking in the NBA so much that he is advocating getting rid of the NBA Draft to eliminate the problem.

Van Gundy doesn’t believe the NBA went far enough with its draft lottery revisions.

Van Gundy indicated that if the league truly wants to eliminate tanking, it should abolish the draft, do away with the rookie salary scale and make all incoming players free agents.

"I'd get rid of it, just get rid of the draft altogether," Van Gundy said. "We'd just deal with the salary cap. Make all [rookies] free agents coming in, and if I want to go give a guy $50 million a year, good, but I got to do it under the cap."

Do you think Stan is on to something or, is this the most ridiculous idea yet?
