    The NBA's board of governors are expected to pass rule changes for the 2018-19 season that include resetting the shot clock after an offensive rebound to 14 seconds from 24, simplifying the clear-path foul rule and expanding the definition of the "hostile act" to more easily trigger instant replay, league sources told ESPN

    Under the changes to the clear-path rule, a clear path to the basket would be in play in these three instances:
    • "A personal foul is committed on any offensive player during his team's transition scoring opportunity."
    • "When the foul occurs, the ball is ahead of the tip of the circle in the backcourt, no defensive player is ahead of the offensive player with the scoring opportunity and that offensive player is in control of the ball or a pass to him has been released."
    • "The defensive foul deprives the offensive team of a transition scoring opportunity."
    In the instance of a clear-path foul, the team is given two free throw attempts and possession on the sideline closest to where the foul happened.

    Sources: Shot clock, other NBA changes likely

    I like it. Teams usually get up the court and set up their offense with 16 seconds left on the clock, so getting 14 seconds when you recover the ball under the opposition hoop should be plenty.

    This takes a little more value away from offensive rebounds & bigs, but the league is already moving in that direction & I don’t see this having that drastic of effects

    Heard about the changes. I do like the proposal to reduce the shot clock after an offensive rebound.

    It just gets a little tougher for clock operators. Now they have to pay attention who gets the ball to reset the clock to eithet 14 or 24.

    Completely unnecessary imo....it's not like they need to speed the game up even more
