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.

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.

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.

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.

Jul 20 - 10:35 AM

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.
Apr 7 - 1:32 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 24 points, four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 30 minutes Tuesday at Golden State.

After a subpar effort in Indiana on March 28, Wiggins has bounced back with 28.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game over his four outings. The points have not been the problem for Wiggins, but fantasy owners want to see more production in the other categories. Until then he is a solid head-to-head fantasy option, but he has much less value in rotisserie formats.
Apr 5 - 2:04 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points (11-of-24 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with three boards and three triples vs. the Blazers on Monday.

While the points and 3-pointers were nice, it's lines like these that have been holding Wiggins back as a fantasy asset. Despite scoring 23.3 points per game this season, he's only returning 10th-round value in standard leagues due to averages of 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.3 triples on 45.4 percent shooting. He's much better in real life than in fantasy, but the 22-year-old still has plenty of room to grow.
Apr 3 - 9:53 PM

Andrew Wiggins' 32 points weren't enough in a 123-117 loss to the Kings on Saturday.

This was his 12th game of the season with 30+ points. He finished 13-of-20 from the field with three rebounds, three assists, one block and four triples, but hit just 2-of-6 from the line -- he's a career 76.0 percent shooter from there. With five games on the schedule, Wiggins is an elite option in the last full week of the regular season.
Apr 1 - 11:20 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 9-of-20 shots and a 3-pointer for 27 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 40 minutes of Thursday's win over the Lakers.

Wiggins has had a big season and typically does some of his best work against the Lakers, although a lack of peripheral stats does offset his ability to score. He dropped 36 against the Lakers on Friday and the two teams meet again on April 9. If the Wolves are still playing their studs, Wiggins should be a solid DFS play that night.
Mar 30 - 10:56 PM

Andrew Wiggins' 36 points weren't enough in a 130-117 overtime loss to the Lakers on Friday.

He did all he could, shooting 14-of-28 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 44 minutes. This was his 11th game of the season with 30+ points, and if his owners can sneak by next week with three games, they get to look forward to the Wolves having five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9.
Mar 25 - 1:49 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points in 39 minutes vs. the Heat on Friday.

He got off to a hot start with 13 points in the first quarter and finished 10-of-23 from the field with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple. Wiggins has come down to earth after averaging 28.8 points per game in February, as he's now averaging 19.2 points through eight games in March. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Wolves play three games in each of the next two weeks after Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans. The Wolves do have five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9, though.
Mar 17 - 11:09 PM

Andrew Wiggins was held to 11 points on 3-of-11 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

The minutes (37) were there tonight, but this was one of his worst lines since the turn of the new year. He added four rebounds, one assist and one steal, hitting 5-of-6 free throws. He's been a top-40 player in standard leagues over the last month with 26.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, so his fantasy owners should cut him some slack. The Wolves play four times next week.
