    Instant replay may now be used:
    • When reviewing a block/charge play to determine whether the defender was inside or outside the restricted area, officials will now be permitted to reverse a charge call, or uphold a blocking call, when the defender was outside the restricted area but was not set when the offensive player began his upward shooting motion.
    • To determine whether an off-ball foul occurred before or after a player has started his shooting motion on a successful shot attempt, or before or after the ball was released on a throw-in.
    • During the review of any instant replay situation to permit the officials to assess the appropriate penalties of any unsportsmanlike and unnecessary acts (e.g. flagrant fouls) that are observed during the instant replay reviews.
    Additional rules modifications:
    • On clear path to the basket fouls, it will no longer be considered a clear path foul if at any point before the foul is committed, the defender who commits the foul is positioned ahead of the offensive player in the frontcourt.
    • A team on offense will lose possession if its player leaves the floor and does not immediately return to the floor, unless he is injured, attempting to save the ball or in other extenuating circumstances.
    Each of these rules was recommended by the NBA’s Competition Committee at its meeting on June 12.

    I don't quite understand that 5th one. Does that mean you can't loiter out-of-bounds to create space any more?

    If you're a fan, just subtly grab the player so that the refs can't see it to get your team the ball back. :hoops:

    Yea, some of the Charlotte players would routinely go for concessions or souvenirs during game play. That will not be allowed anymore.

    That's not good for us. Many of our bigs stand out of bounds to make room for Stuckey to drive to the basket. This is another strike by the league against the Pistons; outlawing our dubiously successful 4-on-5 offense.

    To be fair the Platinum Equity folks might have told the players to stand out of bounds to make the stands look fuller.
