While NBA owners and representatives for the players have a handshake agreement on the broad points of a new labor deal, there are a host of other elements that still need to be worked out before the league hopes to re-open.
One element that has repercussions beyond the league is its age requirement for eligibility, which currently requires a player to be 19 years old and, in the U.S., one year removed from high school.
While it has been widely held that the NBA would like to push the age limit to 20, sources familiar with the dialogue between the two sides now say it is expected to remain at 19 for at least the first two years of the new deal and possibly beyond that.
