Number of technical fouls before suspension in NBA

How many technical fouls can you get before being suspended in NBA?

16

First of all, what is a technical foul?  This term is used in basketball and represents any infraction of the rules penalized as a foul which does not involve physical contact during the course of play between opposing players on the court or it is a foul by a non-player. In the NBA, there are strict rules.  For example, any player or coach who accumulates 16 technical fouls during the regular season will be suspended for one game.  Needless to say,  for every two additional technical fouls received during that regular season, the player or coach will be automatically suspended for an additional game.
