Default Stern wants to raise the NBA draft entry age

Quote:
Stern pointed out that the so-called “one-and-done” rule was an NBA-driven improvement from the days when high school standouts were drafted directly into the NBA, and that he would like to see the requirement taken further.

“We have a committee that we’ve agreed to with the Players’ Association. We will be looking at the entire situation and probably with the (National Collegiate Athletic Association) input as well,” Stern told reporters after kicking off the NBA’s Green Week, a program sponsored by Sprint to generate awareness and funding to help protect the environment.

“We would love to add a year, but it’s not something that the Players Association has been willing to agree to.”
