NBA hands out flop warnings to Kevin Love, John Wall and others

Hannah Foslien

The NBA announced five early-season flop warnings given to Kevin Love, John Wall, Corey Brewer, Patty Mills and Zaza Pachulia.

The NBA announced Monday that five players have been given warnings for flopping during the first week of action. Wizards guard John Wall, Spurs guard Patty Mills, Bucks center Zaza Pachulia, and the Timberwolves' Kevin Love and Corey Brewer were all warned for flopping and will be fined on their next citations.

Love drew a foul call on the Knick's Tim Hardaway Jr. on Sunday by flailing as the New York guard worked through Love's screen. In the same game, T-Wolves swingman Corey Brewer did quite the opposite, flailing and falling down when New York's Tyson Chandler set a screen on him.

On Wednesday, Wall pushed the ball up the court and dribbled into retreating Pistons forward Kyle Singlerthen fell to the floor as if Singler created the contact.

The Spurs' Mills attempted to draw a charge call on Lakers forward Jordan Hill and fell down with mild contact in a Friday game. And Pachulia was successful Friday in drawing a charge on the Celtics' Jared Sullinger, who ran into a limp Pachulia while trying to get into position on offense.
