Adam Silver would like a higher NBA age minimumPosted by Inside Hoops
What do you think of the NBA age minimum? New NBA commissioner Adam Silver feels it’s a bit too low. Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer reporting:
Two 19-year-olds - Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins - are expected to be among the first three players picked in the NBA draft on June 26.
Drafting players that young won’t be the case much longer if NBA commissioner Adam Silver gets his wish.
“I’m in favor of raising the minimum age from 19 to 20,” Silver said Tuesday before the NBA draft lottery in New York.
That could ultimately end the “one-and-done” phenomenon in college basketball, when top players head to the pros after their freshman seasons.
