NEW YORK (AP) – Toronto Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet was fined $ 15,000 by the NBA on Friday for making an obscene gesture during a game against Philadelphia the day before.
The incident occurred with 23 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of the Raptors’ 115-109 victory over the 76ers at Wells Fargo Center.
VanVleet had hit a key three-point shot shortly before making the gesture as he returned to the Toronto bench area.
He finished the game with 32 points, the team’s maximum.
