I agree with Scipio, if you're found guilty of repeated flops, you miss a game. They should be treated as technical fouls anyway.
There's not really much they can do during the game. NBA games already have far too many interruptions, they are trying to reduce these not increase them.

Most of the flops are only caught by the league postgame, they review any play submitted to them.

I agree that a $5000 fine is not enough, they need a more severe punishment.
