Wolves' Kevin Martin, Hawks' Shelvin Mack receive flop warnings
Kevin Martin of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Shelvin Mack of the Atlanta Hawks have received flop warnings for flops that occurred this weekend.
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.
