National Basketball Association to implement coach's challenge system for 2019-20 season

Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer right will have a coach's challenge option next season if he objects to calls by referees such as Zach Zarba left after the NBA announced rule changes for next season on Tuesday

The NBA has already taken steps to be more transparent in the officiating process last season by having centralized replay center make the "last two minute" reports on officials public. Lots of the talk Tuesday focused on how those outcomes came about, and whether the rules served all of the constituents. The players care about their reputations just as much.

"My job is to enforce a fair set of rules for all our teams and a set of rules that are clear and make sense for everyone. And so that's an issue that needs to be addressed".

"We have work to do", Silver said. But there's really no way for the National Basketball Association to change the hearts and minds of players. "And we know that's the case right now".

The measures, recommended by the NBA competition committee, are being used in NBA Summer League games and will be adopted on a one-season trial basis for the 2019-20 campaign.

At its annual meeting here during National Basketball Association summer league, the league's board of governors approved a pair of changes for next season: the use of a coach's challenge and the league's replay center initiating replay proceedings for certain types of plays. A coach can challenge a play by signaling to one of the officials, rather than the use of a flag like the NFL.

Trying to nix the desires of star players as they wield their power is another challenge all together and one the National Basketball Association will need to tread lightly in addressing. 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.

In addition to the challenges, the Board of Governors also approved the NBA's replay center to trigger instant replay, as opposed to on-court referees, something that's similar to the recent implementation of the video assistant referee in soccer.

If a team requests a challenge without a timeout, a technical foul will be called, and the play will not be reviewed.

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.

"I think at the end of the day, it's positive for the league", Silver said. "We have other measurements of social media, fan support [and] attendance that demonstrate that, in fact, interest is growing".

Silver was also asked about the decline in TV ratings this season, which he said could be attributed to several things, including cord cutting and pirating, but said he wasn't concerned about it overall.

"So I don't think there's anything endemic to the league".
