Storyline: Andrew Wiggins Trade?

10 rumors in this storyline

Nate Duncan: Do you think that Andrew Wiggins, a couple of years from now, is on [the Minnesota Timberwolves]? Do you think there’s a chance they might move on from him, given how he’s played this year? Marc Stein: I think that’s something that people will be looking at and I think other teams will be coming after him. Because he’s, at best, gonna be the third option if you’re playing with Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns. [….] I don’t think there’s any question that Wiggins’ future is gonna be talked about. He’s under contract now—it’s a big number but for some teams, that appeals, to be able to get a guy when there is contract certainty and you know you’ve got him, there will be teams who want to trade for that.

The Timberwolves explored several trade options in June, including for Chicago star Jimmy Butler, but Thibodeau, also Minnesota’s president of basketball operations, now sounds as committed as anyone in the franchise to his young trio. Outside the organization, executives wonder about Minnesota’s inclination to keep all three. But within the franchise, there is no question: management and owner Glen Taylor will do whatever it takes financially in order to win. “I love our core three guys, and what I love most is their work ethic, their dedication to work,” Thibodeau said. “They understand the level we need to reach, particularly defensively, and their work shows that they will work to get it right. We understand that it’s going to take some time and we need to work at it each and every day.”
