Andrew Wiggins expected to sign $148 million max contract this week

The Timberwolves have been planning to offer Andrew Wiggins a max contract offer for some time now. It sounds like the team expects the deal to be finalized this week.

Wiggins is one component of an exciting young core Minnesota has that also includes Karl-Anthony Towns and newly acquired Jimmy Butler. To keep Wiggins around for the foreseeable future was always going to be expensive. The amount will likely be $148 million over five years, according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP in Minnesota.

Wolfson adds Wiggins is supposed be in town later in the week for a pre-camp physical and for the team’s Media Day.

Wiggins, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, is preparing for his fourth NBA season. He has missed just one game through his first three seasons and averaged a career-high 23.6 points per game last season.
