NBA warns Tony Parker, Gustavo Ayon and Royal Ivey about flopping

The NBA has issued warnings to Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs, Gustavo Ayon of the Orlando Magic, and Royal Ivey of the Philadelphia 76ers for recent flopping violations.

Ayon and Ivey's violations happened in their respective games on December 26 and Parker's flopping violation happened on December 28. Neither of the three players has received warnings before, meaning they'll be fined $5,000 with the next violation. 

The encouraging thing about these three flops is only one of them resulted in a foul called. Ivey was able to fool one of the referees in his game to call a foul due to his acting job, but Ayon and Parker were left with a couple of no-calls on their respective plays.
