Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards is on a trajectory toward superstardom — Boardroom breaks down his rookie deal with Minnesota.

The NBA has an abundance of young, talented players under the age of 25. Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards is among the best of them, and his ascension toward the highest levels of stardom is evident.

The Ant Man has had his share of highlight moments and productive games at the tender age of 21. He’s even appeared in a movie. Already in his third year, the former No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 draft was able to make his first All-Star appearance this season.

As a top pick, Edwards has a nice-sized entry-level contract; Minnesota has him through 2024 under a four-year, $44 million deal. Boardroom takes a look at the numbers of it.
