The NBA is reportedly considering some crazy new rules for the 2018-19 season, according to a report by ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski, citing sources, says that the league's competition committee is considering, among other things, a reset of the shot clock to 14 seconds after an offensive rebound.

Here are the full possible changes:

"NBA's Competition Committee recommending rule changes for 2018-19 season that include: reset of shot clock to 14 seconds after offensive rebound; simplification of clear-path foul rule; expanding definition of "hostile act" for purposes of triggering replay," he reports.

This would certainly speed the game up, which most basketball fans would enjoy seeing.

The NBA's 2018-19 season is set to begin in mid-October.
