Adam Silver Talks Age Limit, NBA Free Agency's Timing

While NBA Summer League is going on in Las Vegas, so are league meetings with many major figures converging to talk about the state of the league. Commissioner Adam Silver is ready to make changes to the NBA's age limit rule, according to quotes attributed to him by the Washington Post. “My personal view is that we're ready to make that change,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Tuesday at the end of his news conference following the league's board of governors meetings this week, adding that the change won't be immediate. Discussions have been ongoing between the league and the Players Association for months about changing the age limit from where it currently stands — 19 years old and a year removed from high school for domestic players; 19 years old for international players — to 18 years old, which would return the league to the days of players jumping straight from high school to the NBA.
