One of the big changes that the NBA is seriously considering for the future is lowering the age limit for the players from 19 to 18.

According to the league’s commissioner Adam Silver, that is something that will be discussed when the new Collective Bargaining Agreement is negotiated.

Via Tim Bontemps of ESPN:

“It’s [based on] larger conversations than just whether we go from 19 to 18, but I’m on record: When I balance all of these various considerations, I think that would be the right thing to do and I am hopeful that that’s a change we make in this next collective bargaining cycle, which will happen in the next couple years.”
