Anthony Edwards’ deal includes no player option

More than any statistical progression, Edwards’ magnetic personality and yearning for the moment have convinced the Timberwolves that he is ready for the responsibility that arrives with this kind of money. The deal is for the full five years with no player option, league sources told The Athletic.

When you’re seeing Anthony Edwards’ max contract be 5 years, $260M, that is only if he makes All-NBA this season.
If he doesn’t make All-NBA, it will be 5 years, $217M — a *big* factor in the future sustainability of this roster.
Here are what the numbers look like if 5-$260M pic.twitter.com/JVV2M4IIDt12:35 PM
