The NBAa€™s one-and-done rule is unofficially done.

Commissioner Adam Silver made it clear on Tuesday that there is growing support for a change that would allow players to enter the league at the age of 18 rather than require them to play one year of college basketball a€“ or internationally. Such a move would have to be collectively bargained with the National Basketball Players Association, but Silvera€™s tone on this topic was the strongest sign yet that ita€™s only a matter of time.

a€œMy personal view is that wea€™re ready to make that change,a€ Silver said after the conclusion of the latest round of owners' meetings. a€œIt wona€™t come immediately, buta€¦when I weighed the pros and cons a€“ (and) given that (former Secretary of State) Condoleezza Rice and her (NCAA) commission has recommended to the NBA that those one-and-done players now come directly into the league and, in essence, the college community is saying a€˜We do not want those players anymore,a€™ I mean that sort of tips the scale in my mind that we should be taking a serious look at lowering our age to 18.a€
