(WSCR) If you’ve ever screamed relentlessly at your TV because an opposing player “flopped” to make it look like he was fouled, you might be in luck.
According to a report, the NBA is finalizing a new procedure to punish flopping, with an off-court remedy expected to be in place before the start of the regular season.
“The procedures will likely involve a postgame review as opposed to calling it as an in-game infraction,” an NBA spokesman said in a statement to CBSSports.com.
According to NBA rules, the new rule does not need to be approved by the Board of Governors because it does not involve a rule change for on-court play.
