NEW YORK, May 1, 2006 -- Denver Nuggets forward Reggie Evans has been fined $10,000 and assessed a Flagrant Foul Penalty Two for unnecessary and excessive contact with Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Senior Vice President, Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 8:45 remaining in the second quarter of the Nuggets 100-86 loss to the Clippers at the Pepsi Center on Saturday, April 29, and resulted in a technical foul being assessed to Evans, which has now been upgraded to a Flagrant Foul Penalty Two. Kaman was assessed a Flagrant Foul Penalty One for his conduct following the incident, and that penalty has been downgraded to a technical foul by the League Office.
