In a statement posted on Twitter, league spokesman Tim Frank says ''No one at the NBA, nor the competition committee, has had any serious conversations about increasing the size of the floor or adding a 4-point line.'' Frank adds ''Rod Thorn and Kiki Vandeweghe were entertaining a line of questioning about out of the box ideas and chose to make a story that doesn't exist.''
