Let’s just call it the Sixers’ No-Tanking Rule!

The NBA is aggressively pursuing draft lottery reform that could be voted into legislation and instituted by the 2019 draft.

Commissioner Adam Silver wants to deincentivize tanking by implementing lower odds on the NBA’s worst teams to gain the top picks in the draft, league sources told ESPN.

The proposed measures would also increase the chances of better teams making a jump into the draft lottery. The NBA’s 14 non-playoff teams compromise the league’s annual draft lottery system.

Back in 2014, as the Sixers were perceived to be tanking blatantly, the NBA’s board of governors voted down a somewhat more liberal proposal on lottery reform in 2014.

The NBA competition committee, comprised of several general managers and coaches, is expected to vote next week on sending a formal recommendation to the board of governors for final passage, league sources said.
