Gerald Wallace Fined $5,000 for Flopping

by December 05, 2012

The first two NBA players fined for flopping are both Brooklyn Nets. Gerald Wallace joined teammate Reggie Evans in being financially dinged for what the League considered a flop (video of the offending play can be seen here.) The next fine would cost Wallace $10,000. The NBA also announced today that Chauncey Billups received a flopping warning: “Gerald Wallace of the Brooklyn Nets violated the league’s anti-flopping rules for the second time during the Nets vs. Heat game on Dec. 1, he has been fined $5,000.”
