Adam Silver said he was pleased with the quality of the play in the All-Star Game with the two captain format and believed that next year's draft would be televised.
"I thought it was incredible. I can't tell you how appreciative I am of the players," Silver said.
"When we sat with the union and we came up with this format, we all agreed, let's not turn something that's 100 percent positive into a potential negative to any player," Silver said. "But then ... maybe we're overly conservative, because then we came out of there, and the players were, 'We can take it. We're All-Stars. Let's have a draft.' So it sounds like we're going to have a televised draft next year."
Silver, Chris Paul and Michele Roberts came up with the idea of the draft last year.
