2011-2018 NBA, WNBA Referee Comings & Going

NBA Referee Comings and Goings (from 11/12 through 16-18 seasons)

Dick Bavetta and Joey Crawford lead the list of NBA referee retirees in recent years. Both have a remarkable record of officiating for 39 NBA seasons and surpassing 2,000 games. Other notable NBA former referees include Danny Crawford with 23 straight years of finals, former covert agent Bob Delaney, female referee pioneer Violet Palmer, subsequent NCAA final four official Joe DeRosa and Greg Willard who died at age 54 in 2013.

The crew of recent, past former NBA referees is a hard act to follow. New officials such as Mitchell Ervin, Tyler Ford, Lauren Holtkamp, Gediminas Petraitis, Ben Taylor, Dedric Taylor and Justin Van Duyne are giving it a shot.

This article covers officials who either left are started in the NBA during the 2011/12 through 2017/18 seasons. For the "oldies" (those who started before 2011/12) links to a variety of articles is provided. Recent D-League and WNBA referee arrivals and departures for the period are also listed.
