NBA fines Nets' Cam Thomas $40,000 over anti-gay remark during postgame interview

Feb 11, 2023

Brooklyn Nets guard Cam Thomas was hit with a $40,000 fine by the NBA on Friday after he used "derogatory and disparaging language" during a postgame interview following the Nets' 116-105 win over the Chicago Bulls the night before.

The league announced the fine in a press release on Friday, citing Thomas’ use of an anti-gay remark on Thursday night.

Thomas, who became the youngest player in NBA history to record three straight 40+ point games earlier this week, made the remark during an interview with TNT in response to teammate Spencer Dinwiddie’s comment about the trade package that sent Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith from the Dallas Mavericks to Brooklyn in exchange for Kyrie Irving.
