Beck/Bucher: Should the NBA Raise Its Minimum Age?

B/R Video@@bleacherreportB/R VideoFebruary 27, 2014

The NBA is constantly looking for ways to develop young talent while maintaining a competitive level of basketball for fans.

So is raising the NBA age limit the answer?

The league currently requires a player to be at least 19 years old to enter the draft. And for all non-internationals, a player must be one year removed from the graduation of his high school class. These rules were established prior to the 2006 draft. But are the current rules harming both the NCAA and NBA quality of play? 

Watch the video above to see Howard Beck and Ric Bucher discuss how they think the league can cultivate young players, and make sure you hit us up in the comments section below!
