Jahlil Okafor, top recruit in class of 2014: Raising NBA’s age limit unfair to players


Commissioner Adam Silver has gone on the record about his desire to raise the NBA’s age minimum to 20 years old. Rules instituted in the collective bargaining agreement stipulate that players must be at least 19 during the calendar year in which the draft takes place to be eligible, effectively forcing U.S. players to spend at least one year in college — or the D-League or overseas — and creating the maligned “one-and-done” phenomenon.
