NBA Commissioner David Stern said Tuesday that he “would love to add a year” to the current age requirement for the league, according to ESPN.com.

The current limit requires American players to be 19 years old and a year removed from high school. According to ESPN, the league wasn’t able to change the eligibility rules during collective bargaining in 2011 and the NBPA would only agree to form a committee to discuss changes.
