NBA D-League Announces Experimental Rules Changes for 2016-17 Season

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2016 – The NBA Development League today announced experimental rules changes for the 2016-17 season:

The NBA D-League continues to serve as a research and development resource for the NBA, testing rules, equipment and technological advancements.  For the third consecutive season, the league will play with the innovative coach’s challenge, which allows coaches to dispute either called personal fouls charged to their own team or any play that is currently an NBA D-League replay trigger, other than flopping.  Each team is awarded one challenge in the fourth quarter and each overtime period.

The 2016-17 NBA D-League season tips off on Nov. 11 with an all-time high 22 teams competing in a 50-game regular season.
