The PBA Technical Committee has proposed rule changes for the 45th Season primarily to make the games more exciting as well as to be more aligned with FIBA rules.
A new set of head coaches comprise this year’s ‘Competition Committee’ namely Coach Leo Austria of SMB, Coach Caloy Garcia of ROS, Coach Nash Racela of BWE and Coach Louie Alas of Phoenix Fuel Masters (represented by Mel Alas and Christopher Reyes). The 1st Competition Committee under Comm. Marcial was formed in 2018 with Coaches Tim Cone of GSM, Norman Black of Meralco , Yeng Guiao of NLEX and then Alaska Head Coach Alex Compton with Coach Ryan Gregorio and Mr. Quinito Henson.
The Office of the Commissioner plans to rotate all Head Coaches from the league’s 12 teams to be part of the Competition Committee in the future. The PBA Technical Committee will make their rounds to all teams to further explain and discuss the rule changes that include that of substitutions, time resetting and fines and penalties.
The said rule changes were unanimously approved by the Competition Committee.
