Young, who is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee, tweeted her views against the bill, saying that the city shouldn't support same-sex marriage. She also participated in a pray-in-protest movement.
While the WNBA supported Young's right to speak, the league didn't condone her viewpoint.
"Sophia has the right to express her point of view, however, I do not share her view," WNBA President Laurel Richie said in a statement. "The WNBA supports diversity and we are committed to the equal and fair treatment of all people."
