Timberwolves sign Andrew Wiggins and Trey Burke signs with Knicks

The Timberwolves and Andrew Wiggins have agreed on a multi-year contract extension that will keep the young wing in a new-look Wolves uniform. The Timberwolves signed their young star to a maximum contract extension that will keep him with the organization for several years from now. Wiggins will actually make even more money than that when you consider his lucrative endorsement contract with Adidas.

Minnesota owner Glen Taylor also wanted to sit down and meet with Wiggins to openly discuss their expectations and hopes for the Timberwolves' future.

Wiggins had been set to enter the final year of his rookie deal that was worth $7.5 million and included a $9.8 million qualifying offer that would have made him a restricted free agent next offseason. The 22-year-old averaged a career-high 23.6 points per game and shot a career-best 35.6 percent from three-point range during the 2016-17 season. "I love it here".

"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.

That, in turn, makes it easier for Trump to advance nominees in states that do not have any Democratic Senate representation. Grassley has so far been reluctant to end the blue-slip tradition, even as past judiciary panel chairmen, including Sen.

Wiggins was selected first overall in the 2014 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers out of Kansas and traded to the Wolves on August 23, 2014. "I've still got some time before the day before that first game".

Wiggins won the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy as the NBA's Rookie of the Year following the 2014-15 season in which he averaged 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists, becoming the first Wolves player to take the honor. However, the fact that Minnesota has finally got Wiggins on the same page with them is a good thing, especially with the season under a week away.

Wiggins will make more almost double that of Tristan Thompson, whose $16.4 million contract ranks second among Canadian NBA players. He can't be paid just for what he's doing today.
