I actually agree with the change but not the timing.
For me it is not about the upcoming draft but about past decisions like drops and trade decisions that were made based on the current rules.
Since this pool is supposedly long term nothing I have seen yet requires immediate action. Slower implementation allows for the fading away of past decisions.
I would wish this for all changes.
I would also think any real life (NBA) changes would take longer than two weeks from discussion to implementation
