Anthony Edwards measurements: Height, weight, wingspan, vertical for Timberwolves star

When it comes to making highlights, few do it better than Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards.

It was clear when he entered the NBA that Edwards was a special talent. He’s since developed into a two-time All-Star who can shake the best defenders in the league with wicked crossovers, get so high on chase-down blocks that he hits his head on the rim and, of course, put the most imposing rim protectors on posters.

Edwards isn’t even that big for his position. He’s a modest 6-4, but the combination of his length, vertical, and explosiveness helps him to do the impossible.

The Sporting News breaks down Edwards’ measurements below.

Anthony Edwards measurements

How tall is Anthony Edwards?

Edwards is listed at 6-4 on the NBA’s official site, making him the same height as Bradley Beal, Jamal Murray, Russell Westbrook, and Jordan Poole.

Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch said in 2021 that Edwards had grown a couple of inches since being drafted and was more like 6-6. The NBA has been more strict about measuring the exact height of players over the past few years, so if Edwards is listed at 6-4 on the league’s official site, he’s likely that height.

For context, here’s an image of Edwards standing next to Murray from the 2023-24 season:

Anthony Edwards weight

Edwards weighs 225 pounds, according to the NBA’s official site. That makes him the same weight as a number of forwards, including Kawhi Leonard, Harrison Barnes, Jonathan Kuminga, and Keegan Murray, each of whom is between three and four inches taller.

Anthony Edwards wingspan

Ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft, Edwards was said to have a 6-9 wingspan, giving him good length for his position.

Anthony Edwards vertical

There are no official measurements available for Edwards’ vertical, but it’s been reported as being 41.5 inches.

Edwards uses that vertical to make some incredible plays. Since entering the NBA, he’s thrown down a total of 254 dunks, many of which have been posters. He’s earned the reputation of being one of the league’s best in-game dunkers.

Edwards has also pulled off some gravity-defying chase-down blocks this season.
