Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Drops 20-plus points again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins collected 21 points (7-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and five rebounds across 35 minutes during Friday's 100-97 win over the Jazz.

Wiggins certainly hasn't been shy shooting the ball this season despite the increased number of options on the team this season, namely Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague. There was some worry his role might be slightly reduced, but if the team's first two contests are any indication, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Leads team with 26 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins posted 26 points (9-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-9 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 107-99 loss to the Spurs.

Who are the Timberwolves? Wiggins must be wondering, as he finds himself with Karl-Anthony Towns and three new faces starting alongside him. Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson have joined up, making Wiggins and Towns the de facto leaders of the team. Wiggins just signed a whopping $148 million five-year extension, so the onus is on the fourth-year vet to lead the team offensively. He's seen a gradual uptick in production since beginning his career in Minneapolis, starting in 2014 with 16.3 points per game to a career-high of 23.6 points per game in 2016. Though he's not often mentioned in any short list of NBA elite players, it's hard to find a more consistent fantasy producer. In his final 17 games last year he never scored under 15 points and averaged 25,6 points per game, and that's an excellent indication that he'll outdo his career totals yet again.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Officially signs five-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins officially signed his five-year, $148 million contract extension on Wednesday, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

The Timberwolves and Wiggins have been discussing a deal since back in July and it was always expected to get completed at some point prior to the 2017-18 campaign. Wiggins officially gets a max contract, with an average per-year salary just below $30 million. It's yet another vote of confidence for Wiggins, who is coming off a career-year where he averaged 23.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.3 three-pointers. Wiggins should continue to be relied upon for his scoring totals, though he can be a bit of a one-trick pony at times and could certainly stand to boost his numbers elsewhere across the box score. Wiggins will also have to adjust to playing alongside another elite scorer in Jimmy Butler moving forward.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Posts team-high 21 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins recorded 21 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one assist and one turnover across 24 minutes during Sunday's preseason loss to the Warriors.

Wiggins' 21 points were a team-high, but he did very little elsewhere across the box score, which led to a fairly average day in terms of his fantasy value. That has always been one of the bigger concerns with Wiggins, as he's often considered a one-trick pony with his scoring ability. The addition of Jimmy Butler potentially means a few less shot attempts for Wiggins on a per game basis, so he may need to increase his all-around production to keep his fantasy value similar to where it was a season ago.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Discussing contract extension with Wolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins and the Timberwolves are working on negotiations for a five-year contract extension that could be worth up to $148 million dollars, ESPN reports.

Through three seasons in Minnesota, Wiggins has played and started in all but one of his 246 career games and has seen his scoring average rise considerably each year. He is coming off a season where he averaged a team-best 23.6 points per game to go along with 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists. With the arrival of Jimmy Butler, however, Wiggins may see his numbers drop a tad, but the 22-year-old has already done more than enough to prove that the Timberwolves should commit to him longterm. It will likely still take some time before all the details of the extension are ironed out, but it looks as if Minnesota is heavily invested in their young star.
