NBA's Stern wants change to age rule

NEW YORK — David Stern would love a system in which Anthony Davis and the rest of Kentucky's freshmen stars were required to try to repeat.
Instead, the NBA commissioner could end up calling Davis' name in June as the first pick in the draft.
The league wasn't able to change its draft eligibility rules during collective bargaining last year. The rules require an American player to be 19 years old and a year out of high school. The players' association would only agree to form a committee to discuss changes, and is unlikely to consent to an increase without some concession from owners.
While Stern says the NBA "would love to add a year," he's pleased that the age limit, instituted in 2005, has kept NBA scouts out of high school gyms.
