In a recent report by Shams Charania, it has been revealed that the NBA’s Competition Committee is considering the implementation of an in-game penalty for flopping.
According to his sources, this penalty would result in a technical foul free throw. The committee is currently discussing this potential change and there is a possibility of a trial run during the Summer League in July.
Flopping has long been a topic of discussion and debate in the NBA, with critics arguing that it disrupts the flow of the game. The proposed penalty aims to discourage this behavior and maintain the integrity of the sport.
