The league is taking actions to make sure there will be no more fibbing on how tall NBA players really are when you look at the listed height on rosters.

NBA players have been notoriously known about having certain details of their physiques be listed.

But that is all about to change.

According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, the NBA has told teams that they must submit EXACT player heights and ages within the first week of training camp for the league to reference.

Heights will be measured with shoes off according to Stein.

One player who comes to mind is Allen Iverson, who was listed at 6'0'' and nobody seemed to bat an eye.  Teams and players have controlled their height and weight listings throughout NBA history.

For reference, here is this year's Trail Blazer roster, with last year's NBA heights. It will be interesting to see how this changes in the next week:

Hassan Whiteside, 7'1" Center

Zach Collins, 7'0'' Center  

Jusuf Nurkic, 7'0'' Forward/Center

Pau Gasol, 7'0" Center/Power Forward

Skal Labissiere, 6'11" Power Forward

Jaylen Hoard, 6'9" Small Forward

Mario Hezonja, 6'8" Small Forward

Rodney Hood, 6'8" Shooting Guard

Anthony Tolliver, 6'8" Forward

Gary Trent, Jr.,  6'6'' Shooting Guard

Kent Bazemore, 6'5" Small Forward/Shooting Guard

Anfernee Simons, 6'4'' Shooting Guard  

Damian Lillard, 6'3'' Point Guard  

C.J. McCollum, 6'3'' Shooting Guard/Point Guard
