NBA Changes Rules on Off the Ball Fouls

The NBA is taking a step toward trying to reduce the “hack-a” strategy on poor free throw shooting players. The NBA’s board of governors approved rules changes for the 2016-17 season that apply to deliberate fouls that occur away from plays.

With the rhythm and flow of some games bogged down by teams using strategy to foul poor free throw shooters like the Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan and the Detroit Pistons’ Andre Drummond, the NBA has decided to extend the current rule for away-from-the-play fouls applicable to the final two minutes of the fourth quarter and any overtime to the last two minutes of each period.
