Vaughan's Andrew Wiggins signs $148M extension with Timberwolves

Rest easy, Timberwolves Nation: Young star Andrew Wiggins has signed that max $148 million contract that will keep him obligated to the Timberwolves through 2023.

Wiggins scored a career-high 23.6 points, grabbed 4.0 rebounds, tossed out 2.3 assists in 82 games last season, sinking a career-best 103 3-pointers on a career-high 35.6 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

Here's how a flawless storm of calamity would have to unfold for Embiid to earn any less than the full $146.5 million: Across each of the final four seasons of the extension, ending with the 2022-23 season, the 76ers could waive Embiid for a financial benefit if he's lost because of a contractually agreed-upon injury that causes him to miss 25 or more regular-season games and if he plays less than 1,650 minutes, league sources said.

Although there are some concerns about his play on the defensive end of the floor, Wiggins has developed into a dependable scorer that could be a huge piece in turning the Timberwolves into a powerhouse in the Western Conference. He scored 40 or more points 5 different times last season.

"Just making sure we're both committed toward this", Wiggins told reporters.

"I'm pleased that we've reached an agreement with Andrew on a contract extension", Taylor said in a statement. "We look forward to watching his development in the coming years". It's not immediately clear if that's the deal that was signed. Wiggins recently parted ways with agent Bill Duffy but the National Basketball Players Association has guidelines where agents have to get compensated for deals they helped negotiate.

Wiggins has yet to sign with a new representative and used his own counsel to look over the deal before agreeing to terms with the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
