Adam Silver: Making NBA Age Limit 20 Top Priority

Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports
NBA commissioner Adam Silver hosted NCAA president Mark Emmert as part of their annual two-day spring meeting this week. The most important topic that was discussed was pushing back the league's age minimum from 19 to 20 years old.

Here is some of what Silver had to say per ESPN.com:
quote:

"If we're going to be successful in raising the age from 19 to 20, part and parcel in those negotiations goes to the treatment of players on those college campuses and closing the gap between what their scholarships cover and their expenses," Silver said. "We haven't looked specifically at creating a financial incentive for them to stay in college. That's been an option that has been raised over the years, but that's not something that is on the table right now."

In addition, Silver said Emmert and the team owners talked about other ways to potentially ease a player's transition from college to the NBA. This could include changes in officiating and game play, such as reducing the NCAA's shot clock, which is 35 seconds compared to the NBA's 24.
Here is the complete story which has some of the other issues that came up at the meeting.
