The NBA warned Tony Wroten for flopping, and he deserved it.

Here’s video (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward):

Wroten was wide open when he shot, and he still fell. He clearly stuck his foot out to either draw contact or lose his balance.

It’s the type of play that could get someone injured. Next time, it will definitely get Wroten a fine.
