LAS VEGAS (AP) — The NBA Board of Governors approved a new look for uniforms and a couple of changes in the use of video replay.

Commissioner David Stern met with the media Thursday after the Board of Governors held their annual summer meeting.

He said the league is looking to add possibly $100 million in revenue by permitting small advertising patches on uniforms starting in the 2013-14 season.

The competition committee altered a few rule changes with respect to the use of video replay, primarily in the final 2 minutes or overtime of games.

At any point in the game, officials can now check video replay on all flagrant fouls.

Officials can now use video replay in the final two minutes or overtime to decide whether a defender was in or out of the restricted area around the basket on charge and blocking fouls. Replay can also be used for goaltending calls in the late stages games as well.

In September, the competition committee will look at flopping and fouls away from the ball.
