There is no collegiate requirement to play in the NBA. The current NCAA bylaws (as of 11/2/2011) state that a player must be one year removed from his high school graduating class and at least 19 years of age.

In a lot of overseas and smaller American Basketball leagues, a high school diploma isn't even required, as was the case for former Louisville recruit Jeremy Tyler. Tyler decided to forego his senior year of high school to play professionally in Israel.

You do not have to attend college to play in the NBA. However starting in 2006 High School players cannot enter the draft until one year after graduating high school. The player must be at least 19 years old at the end of the calendar year of the draft.

You do not have to go to college at all in order to become a NBA player. Most players are picked from college teams though.

They just changed the rule after Dwight Howard came into the NBA from high school that you need at least one year of college basketball to advance to the NBA.
