Glen Taylor Rumors
The Timberwolves did not announce terms of the deal, but owner Glen Taylor told The Associated Press in August that he offered Wiggins a five-year, $146.5 million extension. “I’m very excited to continue my career with the Timberwolves,” Wiggins said in a statement released by the team. “I love it here. The fans and organization have supported me from my first day here in Minnesota. I want to thank Glen Taylor, Tom Thibodeau, the entire coaching staff and my teammates for believing in me. We’ve had some good times over the last three seasons, but the best is yet to come. I look forward to doing right by them and bringing this team to the postseason.”
Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said Monday that he is ready to commit nearly $150 million to Andrew Wiggins with a max-level extension of his rookie contract. Before he does so, Taylor wants to sit down face-to-face with Wiggins to hear the former No. 1 overall pick commit to the franchise in a similar fashion.
