Shannon Brown's Flagrant on Casspi Rescinded by NBA

3

A flagrant foul 1 given to Lakers guard Shannon Brown during the Lakers' 113-80 victory Friday over the Sacramento Kings was rescinded by the league Monday. Moments after stealing the ball from Brown, Kings guard Omri Casspi went in for a layup but Brown's foul with 8:34 remaining sent Casspi to the floor. According to NBA rules, a flagrant foul 1 is given for "unnecessary contact" and gives the opposing team two free throws and possession. A flagrant foul 2 considers the foul having both "unnecessary and excessive contact," resulting in an automatic ejection as well as the two free throws and possession for the other team. Accumulating two flagrant foul 1s in the same game also results in an automatic ejection.
