Commissioner Adam Silver met with owners Friday to discuss changing the minimum age limit for players entering the NBA.
NCAA president Mark Emmert was invited to the meeting, according to the Associated Press.
Silver is also considering changes to the draft lottery format and playoffs structure, but said raising the draft age limit is a high priority.
Freshmen Andrew Wiggins of Kansas and Jabari Parker of Duke are expected to be drafted in the top five in June, but Silver said that should not prevent the NBA from changing the age limit.
“The fact that our teams would draft these players if they were coming out of high school as they used to, or one year out of college, I think doesn’t mean change isn’t necessary,” he said.
The age limit requiring American players to be 19 years old and a year out of high school was implemented in 2005.
