The NBA defines flopping as any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player. According to league rules, “the primary factor in determining whether a player committed a flop is whether his physical reaction to contact with another player is inconsistent with what would reasonably be expected given the force or direction of the contact.”
This is Redick’s first violation, so it’s only a warning. The second offense incurs a $5,000 fine, third offense is a $10,000 fine, fourth offense results in a $15,000 fine and a fifth offense would cost a player $30,000.
Five players have been fined $5,000 for flopping this season, while 13 others have received warnings. Bucks forward Gustavo Ayon got a warning on Dec. 26 while playing with Orlando.
