Raptors guard Fred VanVleet fined by the NBA for making obscene gestures during the match

NEW YORK – Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet was fined $ 15,000 by the NBA on Friday for making an obscene gesture during a game against Philadelphia a day earlier.

The incident occurred with 23 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the Raptors’ 115-109 victory over the 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center.

VanVleet had hit an important three-point shot shortly before making the gesture as he returned to Toronto’s bench area.

He finished the match with 32 points.
