NBA approves coach's challenge on one-year trial

Fixing tampering is easy. Addressing trade demands will prove a difficult task for Adam Silver

Silver also commented on potential rules changes regarding tampering, saying "the one strong conviction I have is that we should not have rules that are not strictly enforced".

There's always been an understanding that some players are talking to other players about teaming up, which is legal. Coaches must instead call timeout and "immediately signal for a challenge by twirling his/her index finger toward the referees", last month's memo said, per the Associated Press.

Even the actual, nitty-gritty game-related news Tuesday - added opportunities for replay reviews - could be said to derive from the priority on fairness.

Silver said Tuesday that "trade demands are disheartening" and that the league needs to address them.

Years after the National Football League brought the coach's challenge to its sport and changed the game, it now appears the NBA will follow suit for the 2019-'20 season. Challenges also popped up a year ago in the Summer League.

The NBA has tested coach's challenges during Summer League and in the G-League last season.

Each team is allowed one challenge a game, successful or not, on a personal foul charged to a player on that team, an out of bounds call or whistles for goaltending or basket interference.

Kawhi Leonard, the reigning NBA Finals MVP, bolted Toronto after just one year to sign with the Clippers. And no, there won't be a flag for each coach to toss as in football; a twirling of the finger, the signal referees now use, will be sufficient. All technical and flagrant fouls that occur during or right after a call being challenged will stand regardless of the result of the challenge.

The Board of Governors approved the National Basketball Association replay center's ability to trigger instant replay on certain shots.

A courtside administrator would be added to the scorer's table to act as a middle-man between the replay center and the crew at the game, along with someone to announce scoring changes.

Television ratings in the playoffs, down compared to numbers reported in recent years, were not troubling to Silver. "We have other measurements of social media, fan support [and] attendance that demonstrate that, in fact, interest is growing".

A generational shift away from traditional TV viewing, including "cord-cutting", streaming and even pirating might be at work on National Basketball Association ratings.

"It's wonderful to me, again, having been at the league for a long time and having watched change over the years, how much that change is now accelerating", Silver said.

"So I don't think there's anything endemic to the league". All very positive indicators.
