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

Friday September 28th, 2012

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

From Howard Beck of the New York Times:

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.
