None, at least for the former which you and I would allow. At least, I would allow it until the game got delayed to wipe up water (can't give an official DOG warning if it's not after a TO).

Ironically, Nevadaref normally is 100% by the book with no room for interpretation, and now on this issue he's the one making s*it up that doesn't have any rules support.

Then I realize that a student manager has brought water out to the 4 players and is also standing on the court.

I halted my partners from proceeding with the 2nd FT and said, "coach, I need you to take a seat. This isn't a timeout and we shouldn't have water on the court." At this point the head coach realizes whats happening and pops up saying, "what's a matter?" After a quick explanation, his response was, "we can't get a drink during a break?"

At that point I just walked away, obviously realizing that he is missing the bigger picture here. Any thoughts on handling this differently?
Generally I would allow this kind of standing during FT. I would address them being on the court however, they can do all those things while being off the court.
