Brooklyn Nets, Brook Lopez, Reggie EvansReggie Evans has a reputation in the NBA as a flopper, and it's not unwarranted. Evans gained this reputation mostly in Los Angeles, between embellished falls like losing himself over a screen and flying backward after a weak elbow.

Well, Evans hasn't left Hollywood in Hollywood. A repeat winner in ESPN's "Flop of the Night" series, Reggie Evans makes his ¬°first! appearance on the list as a member of the Brooklyn Nets, earning it for an egregious flop against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. Evans gets tangled with rookie Jared Sullinger before flailing backward, grabbing his head as if he'd been elbowed. The NBA has officially warned Evans for the flop.

Here's the video:

This is Evans' first warning of the season so he won't receive a fine. If he receives further infractions, he'll see fines of $5,000, $10,000, $15,000, $30,000, and then a possible suspension.
