Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski says he won't be surprised if the NBA expands its annual draft to include more than two rounds in the not-so-distant future.

With the league's increasing reliance on the G League to develop young players, Krzyzewski says "if I'm the owner of an NBA team and I have a G League affiliate I don't want to just protect two guys - I want to protect everybody."

Krzyzewski says that could have an impact on the college game with more players turning professional earlier so they can get paid.

He says the NBA isn't going to stand still - and college athletics can't either, adding "we cannot keep our heads in the sand. ... We are not good game planners. We are very reactionary."

He also says he expects the G League will increase in popularity, predicting it won't be long before its games are broadcast on national television.
