The NBA has issued two flop warnings for violations that occurred this past weekend.
The first flop warning goes to Kevin Martin of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Martin attempted to draw a foul against Portland Trail Blazers' rookie guard C.J. McCollum during the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss to the Blazers. As he took a contested 3-point shot from the top of the key, McCollum crowded him with good and legal defense. Martin attempted to draw a foul on the play by falling to the ground after releasing the errant shot but no foul was called.
Shelvin Mack of the Atlanta Hawks also received a flop warning from the league for a fall he took in the first quarter of a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. Mack was defending Brandon Knight when Knight extended his arm before jumping out to the 3-point line to receive the pass. The extension of the arm by Knight was enough for Mack to take a dive onto the floor in an attempt to draw a foul.
Both flop violations were the first for these two respective players. The next flopping violation will come with a $5,000 fine.
