NBA promotes 5 refs, including 2 women, to full-time status

November 15, 2018 - 3:02 pm

Ashley Moyer-Gleich and Natalie Sago are among five officials who were promoted Thursday by the NBA to full-time status, making them the fourth and fifth women in league history to have that designation.

Moyer-Gleich and Sago now join former league refs Violet Palmer and Dee Kantner and current official Lauren Holtkamp as women who have the full-time designation. Holtkamp is not working games this season while she recovers from a knee injury.

The league also promoted Mousa Dagher, Matt Myers and Phenizee Ransom to the full-time level. All five of the newcomers started this season as non-staff officials.

The promotions give the NBA six new officials for 2018-19. Brandon Adair was added to the league ref roster at the start of the season.
