The NBA will impose heavy fines on teams that rest their stars during the season

New York. The NBA took steps Wednesday to have its star players appear in more games, particularly those televised on national television and the new tournament that comes with that campaign.

The league’s Board of Governors has approved a new player involvement policy that will take effect next season. It will replace the player rest policy introduced before the 2017/18 season.

The new rules focus on star players — those who have appeared in an All-Star Game or been named to an All-NBA team in the last three seasons.

There are 50 players who fall into this category.

“It’s a vision shared by everyone in the league. “It’s not just something that comes from the league office,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “I think whether it’s our teams, our players’ association or individual players, there needs to be a recognition in the league that we need to get back to the principle that this is an 82-game league… I think there is. “ Policy statement: “If you are a healthy player in this league, you are expected to play.”

Increasing endorsement player involvement is a priority for Silver as the league negotiates a new television rights agreement. The current agreement expires in 2025.

Teams must manage their rosters to ensure that at most one star player is absent from a game.

“What we’ve tried to do as a league office is sort out the various issues, recognizing the real concern of the fans and of course the media that pays for the opportunity to broadcast these games,” Silver said.

The league will have the ability to sanction teams that violate the policy. You could be fined $100,000 for the first offense and $250,000 for the second offense.

Each additional violation would increase the amount by one million dollars.
