Adam Silver Is Looking At Proposal To Reduce Players Resting

Adam Silver Michael Jordan

The NBA board of governors will vote on a proposal to significantly reform the draft lottery process, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports. A proposal to level the playing field with the odds of getting the top pick in the NBA Draft would change the percentages teams with the worst records will have for the top pick.

Under the new plan, [the three worst] teams would each have a 14 percent chance, league sources said, and the odds for ensuing teams would drop incrementally by a percentage point or two. National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver has not been a fan of tanking for quite awhile now, and has devised a potential plan of action that will make teams think twice before they trust the process themselves.

The other somewhat monumental proposal is fixing the draft lottery to eliminate tanking, which is when bad teams, for lack of a better phrase, lose on goal. For example, the team with the worst record could potentially fall to No. 5 instead of the current floor of No. 4.

"There is a recognition from teams that on one hand a certain amount of resting is just inevitable and appropriate to keep the players healthy, but that they shouldn't be resting multiple starters on the same night", Silver said at his NBA Finals press conference.

Hence this is the debut film of Mahesh Babu in Tamil, the Spyder Tamil audio launch event has been held in a grand manner. Although Rakul Preet appears in a de-glam role, it is well suited to her and brings further realism to the character.

The competition committee also recommended Silver's proposition to curb player resting during the regular season, according to Wojnarowski. Two-thirds majority will have to be in favor of the lottery reform for it to pass, and the board will be voting on it on September 28, in NY.

The proposal would also allow teams to drop further in the lottery. Teams believe that the process of trading for star players has become more hard, with agents and players warning that they will leave come free agency and will never consider re-signing with those teams.

The NBA rid the 2017-18 season schedule of back-to-back games around nationally televised appearances, giving teams less reason to sit out players for high-profile games.

The NBA is looking to seriously crack down on teams resting players, especially on the road and in nationally televised games - and they're looking to give commissioner Adam Silver rather significant power to do something about it.
