Andrew Wiggins gets paid, but is he worth it?

Fantasy Basketball Breaking News

The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to a multi-year extension with guard/forward Andrew Wiggins.

He averaged 23.6 points a game a year ago on 45.2% shooting, and he hit 103 3-pointers with 35.6% accuracy from deep. However, according to The Washington Post's Tim Bontemps, the deal is presumably worth the maximum of $148 million over five years.

That's natural for any young player like the 22-year-old Wiggins.

"We feel strongly that he is just scratching the surface of the player he will become", added Timberwolves president of basketball operations and head coach Tom Thibodeau. Another note from the Wolves: Wiggins is already sixth on the franchise's all-time scoring list with 4,995 points. Towns is entering the third year of his deal that includes a club option for the 2017-18 campaign and a $10.1 million qualifying offer for the season after that.

However, in the case of the No. 1 pick of the 2014 draft, the gulf between performance to date and perceived potential is unusually large. "I love it here".

"This is definitely where I want to be; definitely where I want to be", Wiggins said, via USA Today's Sam Amick. He scored 40 or more points 5 different times last season. "I look forward to doing right by them and bringing this team to the postseason".
