Recently, we learned it would be easier to pick up techs. Now the NBA is charging more per technical. Via NBA.com : “Technical fouls will become twice as expensive this season. The NBA informed teams that fines for technicals will double from last season’s amounts in a memo, the contents of which were confirmed to The Associated Press on Friday. Players and coaches will now be docked $2,000 for each of their first five technical fouls. The costs rise to $3,000 for the next five, followed by $4,000 for Nos. 11-15. Starting at 16, players are suspended one game for every two technicals, along with $5,000 for each.”
