A few other teams have followed suit. In fact, NFL officials recently said all players will be wearing non-obtrusive tracking devices in practices and games within the next few seasons to better chart their health.
Now, it appears, the NBA will do so as well. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who is known for his involvement in cutting-edge technology, told NBA.com that he will have his players wear the GPS devices this season, along with three other teams.
Captapult spokesman Gary McCoy said the devices provide a "dashboard" for the player. The Spurs wore them during Las Vegas Summer League games, though the NBA has not approved the devices for use during regular-season games.
