The NBA has widely been expected to change the one-and-done rule in their next collective bargaining agreement, but there appears to be little motivation from any of the key stakeholders on the matter outside of Adam Silver.
The union expects to receive major financial concessions from owners in exchange for this bargaining chip.
NBPA members say they see little benefit to allow a new class of teenagers to enter the league and take roster spots from veterans.
Front office executives have openly dreaded the possibility of returning to high school gyms to scout prospects.
College basketball's biggest stars are also able to make significant sums of money with NIL deals.
Silver is on the record as being adamant that changing the age limit is "the right thing to do," this past July, pointing to "societal changes" and saying he is "hopeful that's a change we make in this next collective bargaining cycle, which will happen in the next couple years."
If a rule change is agreed upon, it is not expected start earlier than the 2026 draft.
