Andrew Wiggins happy to be part of winning culture on Warriors
Andrew Wiggins on Saturday played in his first game since being acquired by the Golden State Warriors prior to Thursday’s trade deadline. The former No. 1 draft pick scored 24 points in a 125-120 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers and went 8/12 shooting.
After making his Warriors debut, Wiggins spoke with the media and shared why he was happy being part of the Golden State franchise.
Andrew Wiggins: "We lost a lot in Minnesota. So coming here, being part of a winning culture, it's different. Losing's never fun. Being here, you can tell by everyone's attitude, approach, everything that's everywhere, they're winners. That's something I've wanted to be."

Wiggins was with the Timberwolves for six seasons and has widely been regarded as failing to live up to his potential despite averaging 19.7 points per game for his career. Being part of a new franchise that has the winning culture and high-end players like he described will give Wiggins the opportunity to change the narrative surrounding his career.
