In an effort to curb increasingly suspicious free-agent activity, the NBA is set to unveil a series of rules and penalties to govern offseason activity. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the NBA will increase penalties and audits.

The fines for improper activity will increase significantly.

Teams will have 24 hours to report the solicitation of unauthorized contract matters in order to avoid fines.

The NBA Board of Governors will vote on the new set of guidelines on Sept. 20.
