The NBA together with the NBPA met on Thursday and got close to a deal for the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Both sides also discussed some of its more controversial inclusions.

One of them is the much-talked about “one-and-done rule” where players out of high school need to complete at least a year in college before being allowed to join the NBA draft. Commissioner Adam Silver as well as team owners were pushing for it to be changed to two years out of high school. But as it stands, the rule will most likely remain the same.

Another item that was discussed was about changing the age when players cannot sign a five-year deal anymore. More popularly known as the “over-36 rule”, it is now expected to become “over 38” in the next CBA.

As soon as all details have been finalized and agreed upon, it needs to be ratified by the players before December 15, 2016 to avoid work stoppage, but with how things are panning out, a new deal will be put into place soon.

With the new television deal expected to generate a lot of earnings for the league and its players, there will be no reason to delay an agreement as all parties will benefit from it.
