If all goes according to plan, Andrew Wiggins will be a very rich man by this time next week. The Minnesota Timberwolves and the young forward are expected to come to terms on a five-year, $148 million extension before Saturday’s first practice. This news comes from ABC5’s Darren Wolfson, who spoke with team owner Glen Taylor. This may just be optimistic thinking from Taylor, but this is not the first we’ve heard of a major payday for Wiggins this offseason. With practices starting on Saturday, it would be in both team’s interests to put pen to paper now. Wiggins, entering his fourth NBA season, won Rookie of the Year in 2015. He has increased his scoring average every year since. Last year the 22-year-old dropped 23.6 points per game on 45-percent shooting from the field. He also drilled 35-percent shooting from downtown. On top of improved numbers, Wiggins has shown himself to be durable. He’s missed just one game in his young NBA career.
