Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards fined $50,000 for chair incident

Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for swinging a folding chair that struck two bystanders at the conclusion of Minnesota’s season-ending playoff loss to the Denver Nuggets on April 25.

The ruling, announced Wednesday, came four months after the incident because of a criminal investigation for Edwards’ conduct, which was dismissed last month.

NBA Executive Vice President Joe Dumars said in a press release that Edwards was fined for “recklessly swinging a chair in frustration that struck two bystanders.”

Edwards missed a game-tying 3-pointer at the end of Minnesota’s Game 5 loss to Denver and ran off the court as the two teams exchanged handshakes. Cameras caught Edwards swinging the chair before heading to the locker room.

Edwards, who turned 22 last week, agreed to a rookie max contract extension worth up to $260 million with the Timberwolves in July and is currently with Team USA in preparation for the FIBA World Cup.
