It looks like the “one-and-done” era is coming to an end. According to The Athletic’s Sham Charania, the NBA and its players association are “expected to agree” to change the league’s age eligibility for the NBA draft from 19 to 18 in its new CBA, a move that would kick in “as early as the 2024 NBA draft.”

  The last year players were allowed to jump straight from high school to the NBA was 2005. The NBA then changed the draft eligible age to 19, or one year removed from high school.
