Better Shot Clock Coming to NBA
NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA will debut a new timing system and shot clock this week in Las Vegas during the NBA Summer League, which will be integrated into all 29 arenas for the 2016-17 season.
The league says the new clock will feature the game clocks, 24-second and timeout for the first time in one piece of hardware.
The timing system will allow for clearer footage to assist referees and the Replay Center, and provides a benefit to some fans. The clock's LED glass is nearly transparent when in use, giving fans behind the baskets a view to the court that was previously obstructed.
