Berger: NBA Crafting Anti-Flopping Policy

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the NBA is crafting a policy aimed at reducing flopping.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the NBA is creating an anti-flopping policy that will penalize players who simulate fouls.

After meeting with their newly revamped competition committee two weeks ago in New York, the league anticipates that incidents of flopping will be adjudicated on a postgame basis with fines assessed for the offenses, a league spokesman said Thursday.

"The procedures will likely involve a postgame review as opposed to calling it as an in-game infraction," the league spokesman said in a statement to CBSSports.com and other outlets.

The idea comes one year too late, as former Portland Trail Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez already fled back to Spain.
