Andrew Wiggins Signs Extension With Wolves

Andrew Wiggins gets paid, but is he worth it?

The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed Andrew Wiggins to a new contract extension.

He averaged 23.6 points a game past year on 45.2% shooting, and he hit 103 3-pointers with 35.6% accuracy from deep.

This would put the Timberwolves locked in with Wiggins for the next five seasons without any outs in the deal with him making more than $25 million beginning this upcoming campaign. Another note from the Wolves: Wiggins is already sixth on the franchise's all-time scoring list with 4,995 points.

Still just 22 years old, the superstar swingman is still improving. "I love it here".




"I'm pleased that we've reached an agreement with Andrew on a contract extension", Taylor said in a statement. I want to thank Glen Taylor, Tom Thibodeau, the entire coaching staff and my teammates for believing in me.

"We've had some good times over the last three seasons, but the best is yet to come. I look forward to doing right by them and bringing this team to the postseason".

It elevates the six-foot-eight swingman into the upper echelon of National Basketball Association earners despite the fact he has never played in a post-season game and is now being touted as a complementary player on a Minnesota team that includes all-star Jimmy Butler and emerging star Karl-Anthony Towns.

The No. 1 overall pick in 2014, Wiggins was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers and traded to the Wolves on August 23, 2014.
