The NBA and its players are continuing to move forward on plans to eliminate the one-and-done rule in college basketball, something that the sides have been working toward for months. The league has sent a proposal to the National Basketball Players Association on lowering the minimum age for entering the NBA draft from 19 to 18, and the union discussed the contents at a meeting in the Bahamas earlier this week, a person with knowledge of the matter told The Associated Press on Thursday. Silver, who was once a proponent of raising the draft minimum age to 20 before changing his mind, said last year that he believes the league and the players can create a better system. The G League also introduced a plan last year to begin offering select contracts worth $125,000 to elite prospects who are not yet eligible for the NBA.
