Armed with majority support from owners and saying “we’re ready to go,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver made it clear that pushing back the league’s age minimum to 20 is at the top of his priority list.

The league’s owners hosted NCAA president Mark Emmert to discuss the issue as part of their annual two-day spring meeting this week. Any changes wouldn’t be in place by next season because the league is waiting for the players’ association to name an executive director before formally starting negotiations. But it’s clear there’s a growing momentum to force this occasionally divisive issue through soon, possibly in time for the 2016 draft.
