How will Anthony Edwards be punished?
It remains unclear whether Anthony Edwards will receive any punishment for his comments from the Minnesota Timberwolves or the NBA.
However, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 draft will most likely be fined for his homophobic comments.
Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant was fined $50,000 in April 2021, according to a report by The Star Tribune. He allegedly used homophobic, misogynistic and profane language in a social media post targeting actor Michael Rapaport.
Additionally, Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant and Nikola Jokic have been fined for using racial slurs during NBA games in the past.
