NBA Board of governors voting on Lottery reform on September 28

NBA Board of governors voting on Lottery reform on September 28

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.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Adam Silver and the NBA's Competition Committee has submitted several proposals to the league's Board of Governors, with the biggest points being draft lottery reform and teams resting players.

The full scope of the proposal isn't known, but Woj has been able to tease out some details. Currently, the NBA's worst three teams bear 25.5 percent, 19.9 percent, and 15.6 percent odds, respectively, at the No. 1 pick.

The NBA's proposed changes to the system would begin with the 2019 draft and include a smoothing-out of odds among the league's worst teams, league sources said.

Who the hell knows if this proposal will actually get passed, or if it would even work to prevent tanking. Having the worst record possible gives that franchise the best chance at landing the first overall pick in the following draft.

The draft lottery reform must be approved by the NBA's board of governors for a final vote on September 28.

The proposal would also allow teams to drop further in the lottery. The worst team has potential to fall to the No. 5 pick, the second-worst can fall to No. 6, and so on and so forth.

The competition committee also recommended a plan to the board of governors to curb the resting of healthy players in the regular season, league sources told ESPN.

For the 2017-18 season, the National Basketball Association has reduced the number of back-to-backs teams have to play to deter them from resting players in a big road games, but the new rule would be another way to discourage teams from sitting star players in important matchups. Instead, the home fans will have to run that risk instead, at least more frequently. According to Wojnarowski, the "proposed guidelines for resting players will encourage teams to sit healthy players for home rather than away games, and discourage the practice during nationally televised games".
