Report: Wolves' J.J. Barea busted for flopping again, fined $5,000

J.J. Barea is in trouble for flopping again.

The Minnesota Timberwolves guard was fined $5,000 for his flop in a loss last Monday at Dallas -- his second violation of the NBA's new anti-flopping policy, SI.com reported.

Barea became one of the first two players warned after he flopped on Nov. 5 in a game against Sacramento. In all, 12 players have been warned this season, but only Barea and two others -- Reggie Evans and Gerald Wallace -- have been fined.

Subsequent violations would cost Barea $10,000 for a third offense, $15,000 for a fourth and $30,000 for a fifth, after which he could face an even greater fine or suspension.

So far, it's pocket change to Barea, who is making $4.5 million this season.
