The Timberwolves announced the team has signed forward Andrew Wiggins to a multi-year contract extension.
It's a max extension for $148 million over five years. Wiggins and the Wolves have been expected to agree to terms on this deal for quite some time, and now it's official. The 22-year-old swingman is coming off a career-high 23.6 points per game, but it'll be interesting to see how he adapts to playing next to Jimmy Butler. Oct 11 - 2:19 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

Fantasy owners are hoping that Wiggins has expanded his all-around game over the offseason, but he finished without a rebound, block or steal in 22 minutes with one assist and two triples. With coach Tom Thibodeau and Jimmy Butler in his ear, we'd expect his rebounding and defense to improve sooner rather than later.
Oct 8 - 10:43 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored nine points with three rebounds, one assist, three steals and three turnovers in 26 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

He dropped 41 the last time he played the Lakers, and he wasn't bashful with his shooting and worked a lot in isolation. Wiggins is a very scoring-dependent guy for his stat lines, so the addition of Jimmy Butler should lower his upside in fantasy. There's some talk he will hit the boards harder, but he's still only worth a look in the later middle rounds.
Oct 1 - 12:51 AM

Andrew Wiggins said he has added weight and will focus on rebounding next season.

Wiggins averaged 4.0 rebounds in 37.2 minutes per game last season. As a rookie back in 2014-15, he averaged 4.6 boards, while playing 36.2 minutes a night. Coach Tom Thibodeau has also stated he wants Wiggins to be more aggressive on the glass. If Wiggy can pull down five-plus boards per game, that would give his overall fantasy value a boost.

Andrew Wiggins is progressing toward a five-year, $148 million maximum extension according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Wolves have been saying since July that they will give Wiggins his max deal and Shams Charania adds that he's expected to sign soon. The deal wouldn't kick in until 2018-19 and will keep him under contract through the 2022-23 season. Wiggins is more of a one-trick pony in fantasy for his scoring ability, but he should only improve his all-around game in his age-23 season. Being able to learn from Jimmy Butler could be huge as well.

Andrew Wiggins is expected to sign his five-year, $148 million extension with the Timberwolves before training camp begins on Saturday.

This deal has been rumored to be in the works for the past month, but was put on hold when Wiggins fired his agent, Bill Duffy. As for fantasy hoops, Wiggins can be a nice source of points, but his limited contributions to the other statistical categories really limits his upside. Maybe he'll learn how to become more of a complete player under Jimmy Butler's tutelage, but we'd still recommend waiting until the later rounds before making a move on Wiggins.
Sep 18 - 5:51 PM

Andrew Wiggins fired his agent Bill Duffy on Tuesday after Duffy negotiated a five-year, $148 million extension for his former client.

It's unclear exactly when Wiggins will sign this five-year extension with Minnesota, but it sounds like he fired Duffy because he was lured away by other agencies offering him no commission fees on contracts. "We are disappointed that Andrew made this decision," Duffy said. "Unfortunately, tampering is a common problem in our industry, and that's part of the reason why I've already been in contact with the NBPA to discuss my rights in this matter."

Wolves owner Glen Taylor said he's going to sign Andrew Wiggins to a max deal in the near future.

The Wolves have been linked to Kyrie Irving, but Taylor also confirmed that Wiggins isn't going anywhere. The deadline for a rookie extension isn't until Oct. 16, but it sounds like the two sides are already finalizing the details of a five-year deal worth roughly $150 million. Wiggins is an elite scorer with 23.6 points per game in 2016-17, but he will need to become more versatile to take the next step as a fantasy player -- he averaged just 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.3 treys in over 37 minutes per game.
Aug 7 - 11:39 AM

The Timberwolves have offered Andrew Wiggins an extension.

Wiggins has recently been linked to some trade rumors involving Kyrie Irving, but the Timberwolves reportedly rebuffed those offers, and the team offering him an extension falls in line with the narrative that Minnesota has zero interest in moving the 22-year-old swingman. Details on exactly what was offered have not yet been reported, but it's likely a five-year deal in the $148 million range.
Aug 2 - 10:13 AM

In trade talks with the Wolves, the Cavs have requested a package of Andrew Wiggins and "something of substance" in exchange for Kyrie Irving, according to Darren Wolfson of ESPN.

Unsurprisingly, the Wolves are reportedly not interested in giving up Wiggins plus additional pieces to land Irving. Cleveland's demands have been very high since word leaked that Irving had requested a trade. We shall see if the price drops as the Cavs get closer to training camp. As for Wiggins, it appears he is on the verge of signing a five-year, $148 million contract extension with Minnesota.
Aug 1 - 10:23 AM

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said on Friday that the team plans to sign Andrew Wiggins to a five-year maximum contract extension.

The deadline for a rookie extension is Oct. 16, but it appears a deal will get done sooner rather than later. "First of all, I think he likes it here, we like him, he can get the very best contract from me, better than he can get from anyone else," said Taylor. "I don’t think we have any trouble of offering him the max anyway." Wiggins new extension will pay him approximately $150 million over five seasons, beginning in 2018-19.
Jul 29 - 9:23 AM

Andrew Wiggins said that he believes he's definitely deserving of a max contract.

Wiggins is eligible for a rookie extension, which would have to be signed prior to the October 16th deadline. The extension could be worth up to $148 million over five years. When asked if he was worthy of a max contract, Wiggins responded: "I definitely do. Nothing less." Wiggins has been largely a one-dimensional player thus far in his career, but is already one of the league's elite scorers at just 22 years of age.
Jul 28 - 9:15 AM

The Wolves are working on a five-year extension for Andrew Wiggins according to head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.

The extension would be worth nearly $148 million, but it wouldn't kick in until 2018-19. Wiggins has already established himself as an elite scorer with a career-high 23.2 points per game last season, but Thibodeau said he wants to see him become a "complete player" and believes Jimmy Butler will help with his development. Wiggins was only a 10th-round value in standard leagues last season due to a lack of peripheral stats, but he's still only 22 and is just scratching the surface of his potential.

Andrew Wiggins poured in 41 points on 13-of-26 shooting in Sunday's 110-109 loss against the Lakers.

Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns each went over for 40 points, becoming the first duo in franchise history to score that many in a single game. He continues to roll up solid scoring totals, but he won't take that next step for fantasy value until he starts to contribute better across other categories. Wiggins is just 22 years old and he has plenty of time to improve, and he will.
Apr 10 - 12:13 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored a game-high 36 points vs. Portland on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

Wiggins' athleticism and shot-making abilities were on full display tonight, as he made 14-of-27 field goals and 7-of-9 free throws. His overall roto value has been limited this year due to mediocre averages of 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.4 blocks, with 2.3 turnovers, but it's important to remember that he's just 22 years old. The best is yet to come.
