NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has issued flopping warnings to Minnesota's JJ Barea and Cleveland's Donald Sloan, the first two under a new policy designed to end the act.
Barea threw his upper body backward after contact while defending Sacramento's Jimmer Fredette in the fourth quarter on Friday. Sloan tumbled wildly to the court a few feet from contact after a pick set against him against Chicago on Saturday.
The NBA announced a new policy in preseason to stop the act of players dramatically overselling contact in hopes of tricking referees into calling fouls. League officials review plays and inform players if something they did falls under the league's definition of a flop.
The league issued the warnings on Monday.
