Teams can’t sit healthy players for high-profile, nationally televised games, and fines for violating that can be for at least $100,000.The rules also say that unless there are unusual circumstances, teams should not rest multiple healthy players for the same game or rest healthy players when playing on the road.The league office had long resisted getting involved in coaches’ decisions about resting players. But with its national TV partners paying the league billions, Silver felt he had to act after LeBron James and stars from the Golden State Warriors sat out nationally televised games last season.“It’s not a position we want the league to be in,” Silver said. “It ultimately is my hope that the rules go in the drawer and that teams step up here and see that there is a larger obligation to our fans, to the basketball community.”The board also talked about current events, meeting less than a week after President Donald Trump opted against inviting the Warriors to the White House after All-Star Stephen Curry said he didn’t want to go.Trump had criticized NFL players for their anthem protests in a speech the night before, and hundreds responded in games Sunday and Monday by kneeling during the anthem.Silver thinks NBA players have other opportunities, either by continuing their community service efforts or through the media, to make their voices heard.“I’m hoping once again that this league can play a constructive role there,” Silver said. He spoke following the NBA’s Board of Governors meetings, during which owners passed rules designed to prevent healthy players from sitting out games, and teams from losing games on purpose to improve their draft position.Under the new draft lottery rules, the teams with the three worst records will all have 14 percent odds to land the No. 1 pick when the changes are implemented with the 2019 draft.The team with the worst record previously had 25 percent odds to win the lottery and could fall to the No. 4 spot in the draft. Now that team call tumble all the way to fifth.The lottery changes were to discourage tanking, the practice of losing games on purpose in an effort to improve draft odds. The Philadelphia 76ers relied on the tactic heavily in recent years and the league felt it needed to step in and urge teams to always be competitive.Silver felt teams had even begun feeling pressure to use the strategy of fielding poor squads and building through the draft.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Recovering from losing five first team players, Southampton have shown the Premier League they can still attract talent following the signing of Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld.Having impressed in the World Cup, the Belgium centre-back has joined Ronald Koeman’s side on loan until the end of the season, looking for more first team opportunities after his year in Spain where he won La Liga.However, Alderweireld, with 39 international caps, can add a great deal to the Saints squad and is an ideal replacement for Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers who joined Liverpool and Arsenal respectively.Here, talkSPORT looks at what those in the game have to say about the 25-year-old…I am delighted, he is a strong defender, and is also very good at building up the play when we play out from the back– Ronald Koeman, Southampton managerToby is an extremely talented defender – he is a real defender. I needed only two matches to be convinced about him. He is not only good at defending, he is also good in the build -up; a top player in the making– Martin Jol, Alderweireld’s former Ajax coachHe will be a great signing. He is a strong centre-back, burly and he can also act as a right-back. He is going to be a very interesting player for our squad– Chelsea goalkeeper and former Atletico team-mate, Thibaut CourtoisThey would need to pay the asking price, if we were to let one of our star players go– Ajax director of football Marc Overmars was keen to keep him in the EredivisieWe will count on him as long as he is here. We are very grateful for the great work he has put in for us and happy with his attitude– Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid manager Southampton sign Belgium international Toby Alderweireld (left) 1
