Andrew Wiggins said his main focus this summer is improving his 3-point shot.
"The main thing I’m working on more than others is getting better outside the 3-point line," Wiggins said. "Also, ball handling and breaking my defender down, getting to the rim in different ways. But really, it’s 3-point shooting. Staying balanced, and making sure my shot is consistent for this year." Wiggins shot just 24.4 percent from deep before the All-Star break, but then hit 41.3 percent of his treys to close out the season. Wiggins also said he's hoping to get into the playoffs and believes that coach Tom Thibodeau will bring out the best in him. Jul 31 - 9:58 AM

Andrew Wiggins said that two of his primary goals for this offseason are to improve as a shooter and ball handler.

"I’m working on everything," Wiggins said. "I’m trying to improve my ball handling, improve my shooting. Those are two of those most important things I’m doing this summer." Wiggins had a slow start to the 2015-16 season, but he put up solid mid-round value after the break with averages of 20.5 points, 2.4 assists and 1.3 steals per game on 48.4 percent shooting. According to Wiggins' trainer he's been living in the gym this summer going through two-a-day workouts, and he's looked "scary good at times."

The Chicago Bulls reportedly want Andrew Wiggins included in any deal for Jimmy Butler.

The Timberwolves have reportedly made the fifth pick in the 2016 NBA Draft available to the Bulls as part of a play for Butler, but Chicago wants Wiggins included if they're going to give up Butler. It's unclear if Wiggins and the fifth pick would be an acceptable return for the Bulls, but we'll likely see other teams get involved in the bidding before (if) Butler is dealt.

Andrew Wiggins will not play for team Canada in Olympic qualifying tournament.

He said he wants to focus on next season. Team Canada is awfully shorthanded with Nik Stauskas and Kelly Olynyk already ruled out. As for Wiggins, he has a big offseason on his hands with a new system and hopes of him improving his perimeter game. After the break, he did make 41.3 percent of his 63 attempts from deep, so that's a start.

Tom Thibodeau said that he wants to see a "dramatic improvement" on defense from Andrew Wiggins and the rest of the Wolves.

"He impressed me the way he scored against us when I was still coaching," Thibodeau said of Wiggins. "He made it look easy. I think the challenge — not only him but for his teammates — is there’s going to have to be dramatic improvement defensively. You have to make a commitment in that area." Thibodeau should be great for the development of Wiggins, and he did show some glimpses of his upside with averages of 20.5 points, 3.5 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.9 3-pointers after the All-Star break.
Apr 22 - 12:30 PM

Andrew Wiggins wrapped up the season with a 21-point game vs. the Pelicans, making 8-of-14 shots with four boards, one 3-pointer and a pair of blocks in 33 minutes.

Wiggins averaged a team-high 20.7 points this year and his 45.8 percent shooting is a big improvement from his rookie season (43.7 percent). Unfortunately, he was limited to late-round roto value due to middling 3-pointers (0.7), rebounds (3.6), assists (2.1), steals (1.0) and blocks (0.6). We've yet to see what he's fully capable of, but this season's limitations should be kept in mind on draft day.
Apr 14 - 12:57 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 32 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He's struggled against the Blazers all season and this was his best game against them. Wiggins has really added a lot to his arsenal with an array of offensive moves lately. Of course, the major missing piece of the puzzle is a 3-pointer. That aspect of his game will be under a microscope until late October.
Apr 10 - 1:40 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 15 points against the Kings on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

It was kind of a letdown in such a favorable matchup. Wiggins has still been fairly efficient since the break with a 58.2 true shooting percentage, so that's a really nice thing to see. Everyone will be watching Wiggins' 3-point shot next season.
Apr 8 - 1:12 AM

Andrew Wiggins led the Wolves to a 124-117 overtime win vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, scoring 32 points on 11-of-19 shooting with five boards, four assists, six steals and two treys in 42 minutes.

He was nothing short of incredible tonight, helping the Wolves overcome a 17-point deficit. The steals were obviously a career high, and Wiggins has now scored 30 or more points in three out of his last five games, averaging 25.0 points, 3.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers in that span. He's already a stud in real life, but his fantasy stock for next season is rising rapidly due to his recent improvement from beyond the arc.
Apr 6 - 1:54 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 30 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 41 minutes vs. the Mavs on Sunday, making 12-of-21 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs in a home loss.

The Wolves have now lost three straight games, and in their previous five they allowed 107.0 points on 48.5 percent shooting, including 39.7 percent from downtown. Defensive lapses are nothing new for Minnesota and coach Sam Mitchell is letting his young guys play through mistakes, so Wiggins should have a strong finish to his impressive 2015-16 campaign.
Apr 3 - 7:05 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored a team-high 24 points against the Jazz during a 98-85 loss on Friday, adding two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was the only Wolves starter to have a decent game with the other four starters scoring just 30 points combined. Wiggins' neck injury wasn't a problem and he's good to go. Expect him to have a nice game against the Mavs on Sunday, especially since he's been fairly consistent since the break.
Apr 2 - 12:08 AM

Andrew Wiggins (neck) will play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

He did miss practice on Thursday, but it was just a precaution and Wiggins was even listed as probable on the injury report. Coach Sam Mitchell said that he won't rest his studs down the stretch, so Wiggins should have a strong finish to the season.
Apr 1 - 2:07 PM

Andrew Wiggins (neck) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

He was held out of Thursday's practice as a precaution, but he's simply dealing with a sore neck and the injury is not believed to be serious. Expect an update after Friday's morning shootaround, but his owners can keep him locked into lineups for now.
Mar 31 - 2:04 PM

Andrew Wiggins exited Wednesday's game with a chin laceration and is questionable to return.

Wiggins was on the bench with a team trainer for quite a while before heading into the locker room, and it's likely that he's going to have concussion tests before being cleared to return. There is no word of a concussion just yet. If he's out, it looks like Shabazz Muhammad would benefit, but there's no need to make a speculative add yet.
Mar 30 - 9:42 PM

Andrew Wiggins filled it up during a 121-116 win over the Suns on Monday, scoring 32 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He lived at the free throw line, making 17-of-21 from there in this win. For basically his entire NBA career, Wiggins has been a letdown in fantasy because he hasn't been able to add non-scoring stats to his production. Hopefully, he can add some 3-pointers to his arsenal next season.
