Chris Paul and Tyreke Evans receive flop warnings

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Busted.

Both Chris Paul and Tyreke Evans have received flop warnings for plays that happened March 19 in a game between the Clippers and Kings, the league announced Thursday.

Paul's was one of the most flagrant flops we've seen this season, an attempt to draw a foul on DeMarcus Cousins. Paul threw his head back, yelled out and flailed his arms. The officials weren't fooled, and the league was not amused.

Evans was caught for a play in the same game where he initiated contact with Matt Barnes exaggerating the extent by throwing his head back. Unfortunately, the officials were tricked on that play as Evans got the call.

This is the first flopping offense of the season for both players. Their next one would warrant a $5,000 fine.

The league has either relaxed on the flopping enforcement or players have done it less as these two warnings are only the second and third since the All-Star break.
