Minnesota Timberwolves Sign Andrew Wiggins to Contract Extension

Minnesota Timberwolves Sign Andrew Wiggins to Contract Extension

Following weeks of building anticipation, the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday morning finally agreed to terms on a five-year, $146.5 million extension with forward Andrew Wiggins. He is coming off his best individual year where he averaged a career-high 23.6 points per game. The extension will kick in at the beginning of the 2018-19 season, after Wiggins' rookie contract expires. Wiggins, still just 22 years old, has had his critics dating all the way back to his one season in Lawrence, Kansas, and carried over to his National Basketball Association days with the Wolves.

Andrew Wiggins #22 of the Minnesota Timberwolves looks on in the third quarter during a game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on November 5, 2014 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

It's easy to see why the T-Wolves opened the vault for Wiggins.

"We feel strongly that he is just scratching the surface of the player he will become", said head coach and president Tom Thibodeau in the press release.

In Australia, Influenza A (H3N2) was the predominant flu virus this year, and 81 percent of the deaths were caused by that strain. Fluzone High-Dose : It is a high potency vaccine that contains four times the amount of antigen compared to a standard flu shot.

Wiggins, who was traded to Minnesota in 2014 after the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted him No. 1 overall, has tremendous leverage in negotiations. "I love it here".

The new deal also makes Wiggins the highest-paid Canadian NBA player of all-time.

"We've had some good times over the last three seasons, but the best is yet to come".

"This is definitely where I want to be; definitely where I want to be", Wiggins said, via USA Today's Sam Amick.
