Trail Blazers guard Gary Trent Jr. has been officially warned by the NBA for his flopping antics. On Monday, the former Duke guard did his best Cliff Booth impersonation and flew through the air like a well-trained stunt man in the third quarter of the Blazers’ loss to the Thunder.
In case you missed it, here is the video of Trent’s work with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in pursuit.

Here is another angle of Trent’s flop in all its glory:
Outside of producing that gem, Trent recorded 22 points in 41 minutes of action as a starter against OKC. If Trent commits to another flop that garners attention from the league, he will face a fine of 5,000 dollars.
