ELIZABETH, N.J. -- The NBA is finalizing a new procedure to deal with flopping this coming season, with an off-court remedy expected to be in place before the start of the regular season.

After meeting with their newly revamped competition committee two weeks ago in New York, the league anticipates that incidents of flopping will be adjudicated on a postgame basis with fines assessed for the offenses, a league spokesman said Thursday.

"The procedures will likely involve a postgame review as opposed to calling it as an in-game infraction," the league spokesman said in a statement to CBSSports.com and other outlets.

The new policy does not need to be approved by the Board of Governors, which meets next month in New York, because it does not involve a rule change for on-court play. In that way, the new policy will be similar to a crackdown several years ago on so-called "respect for the game" rules violations, which resulted in a brief uptick in technical fouls.

It would be more successful if they fined the refs who get fooled, or better yet, fine some random fan in the stands wearing the player's jersey -- Ginobody jersey sales would drop to nothing in the first week.

For every flop not called, Anthony Davis must pluck 1 unibrow hair from his brow until flops are no longer there or until Davis has 2 eyebrows. whichever comes first. That or dental work.

Every time a flop is noted, David Stern must pay a $1000 fine to a charity.

Good deal. This would be a cautious start which is appropriate.

I like this and I can only hope that the dollar amount escalates for frequent offenders.

I vote for a fine equivalent to 25% of the player's salary for that game. I'd love to see Chris Paul's face when he gets hit with a $54,000 fine for flopping. Hell, it'll be funnier when he loses his whole game salary in the first quarter.

I would like an in-game penalty, so that the players and teams fear the consequences of flopping.

I am all for flagrant foul, ejection, and free throws when it comes to flopping.

In addition, repeat offenders should face multiple game suspensions.

A fine?

Kevin Martin will be paying the NBA for the privilege to ball next season.

This is GREAT news. Look, it's hard to determine flops in-game, but nothing gets players to start acting smarter during the regular season than hitting their pocket books.

That being said, super stars with loads of money won't care and during the playoffs people will flop again because it will be worth it if you can get a win.

Still, this is a great place to start people. This could lead to further penalties or in-game reviews down the line.
