Discussions between the NBA and the players’ association to end the one-and-done era and lower the league’s minimum age to 18 have resumed in recent weeks, infused with urgency as the clock ticks on the league’s preferred target date of the 2022 NBA draft, league sources told ESPN.

So far, the NBA’s pursuit of NBPA concessions in the areas of mandating that draft prospects furnish teams with medical information and an additional requirement that would center on attendance and participation at the NBA pre-draft combine remain obstacles to a deal, league sources said.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver had hopes of closing a deal with the union that would allow graduating high school seniors to participate in the 2022 draft. For the sake of franchises’ planning and team building, though, organizations preferably need a resolution on a timetable for lowering the age limit before they have to consider making trades this spring.
