    Default NBA to test in-game flopping penalty at summer league

    The NBA will be testing a proposed in-game penalty for flopping during summer league, according to an announcement by the league Tuesday.

    A flop, which will be determined by referees at the game, will be penalized by awarding the opposing team one free throw. The player who commits the flop will be assessed a non-unsportsmanlike technical foul, which won't count toward personal fouls or lead to an ejection.

    Officials won't be required to stop live play to call a flopping violation.

    The league in 2012 implemented an anti-flopping rule that resulted in a warning and then an increasing amount of fines for every subsequent violation. However, there was no in-game penalty and the rule has rarely been enforced since its implementation a decade ago.
    Would be great if this time the refs really do what they need to do.

    In regards to that - from a game last night - Flopping by Lebron James leaves him embarrassed - https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nba...ed/ar-AA1kNm9T

    Congrats to the referee who did that. There is definitely a lot of flopping, and it will only stop if the players are called out on the spot.
