Reggie Evans receives warning for flopping (VIDEO)

Reggie Evans, as Steve Kerr mentions in the video clip above, was somewhat featured in the video compilation that the league put together to show teams and media before the season to demonstrate the types of plays that players would be warned for this year under the new rules against flopping.

Apparently, he didn’t get the message.

Evans is the latest player to receive a warning for his behavior, based on this play from the game between the Nets and the Celtics on Nov. 15.

You can see that Evans catches some contact from Jared Sullinger under the basket, but it certainly wasn’t enough of a hit to cause him to drop to the floor as if he was shot by a sniper in the stands.

Evans is the fourth player to receive a warning for flopping so far this season, with the other honors being given to J.J. Barea, Donald Sloan, and most recently, Kevin Martin.
