According to a report by Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report, the NBA’s Competition Committee is considering a rule change that would grant teams a second and final challenge if their initial challenge is successful.
The proposed change, set to potentially take effect from the 2023-24 season, aims to provide coaches with an additional opportunity to challenge a play and have it reviewed by the referees.
This development could bring an added layer of fairness and accuracy to crucial game moments, as teams would have more chances to challenge questionable calls. The possibility of implementing this rule change will be further explored through a test run during the upcoming Summer League.
As the discussions continue, the NBA seeks to strike a balance between ensuring the integrity of the game and utilizing technology to enhance the accuracy of officiating decisions.
