The PBA will adopt new shot clock rules for the upcoming 2020 season which tips off on Sunday, March 8.
In the new rules the PBA adapted from FIBA, the shot clock will reset to 14 seconds for any possession gained in the frontcourt of the team.
For instance, an opposing team commits an 8-second backcourt violation, the other squad will gain possession and a 14 second shot clock since they will inbound in their frontcourt.
A few years back, the PBA adopted a shot clock reset of 14 seconds for every offensive rebound following a shot that hit the rim.
Such rule changes are to speed up the game.
Aside from the new rules when it comes to the shot clock, interfering with the ball during a deadball situation or an inbounds play may result to stiffer penalties.
The 2020 PBA Philippine Cup opening day will feature the Leo Awards and a showdown between San Miguel Beer and Magnolia.
