Team A's coach is talking on a cell phone to a fan behind Team B's bench who is watching and listening to what B's coach is saying during a timeout. What is the best way to handle this situation?

Tell Coach B.
Warn Coach A.

Technical foul for using "electronic transmission devices" (or some words to that effect -- I'm away from my rule book).

No question this is a T, if there's no question that's who he is actually talking to.

You have 2 choices. Warn the coach to dump the cellphone, or give team A(not the coach) an immediate technical foul under rule 10-1-3- i.e. "use...electronic transmission device at courtside for coaching purposes'.

Have game management move fan A.
If fan A won't move, have game management remove fan A.

Oh My, the world is coming to an end. I agree with Hawks Coach. What's next? Agree with Rut who stole my tagline?

There is a beautiful illustration of what you should do on page 72 of the Fed's simplified and illustrated (10.1.3) I might also consider having the fan removed or at least moved to a different area of the stands.

I'd have the fan shot for being a spy.
