Reports: Flopping will be reviewed after games under NBA's new policy

Multiple reporters have tweeted details of what the NBA's new policy on flopping will look like.

Orlando Magic play-by-play announcer David Steele translates:

Assuming this is true, it's an interesting approach. Because while it's all fine and good to fine someone after the fact, what if the flop causes a team to lose a possession and thus a chance to tie or win the game? We'll see if the threat of a fine serves as enough of a deterrent.
