Andrew Wiggins: ‘No rush’ to Sign Extension with Minnesota

Nobody seems to know why Andrew Wiggins hasn’t secured his long-term future with the Minnesota Timberwolves just yet – other than the 22-year-old himself.

It has been approximately two months since Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor made it clear that a five-year, $148 million extension was Wiggins’ for the signing, and more than six weeks since the fourth-year shooting guard parted ways with his agent, Bill Duffy of BDA Sports, after the deal appeared to be all but done. Yet Wiggins, the former No. 1 pick who averaged a career-high 23.6 points per game in his third season, has yet to pick up the pen as the Oct. 16 extension deadline nears.

“I’m just taking it day by day, you know?” Wiggins told USA TODAY Sports on Saturday. “There’s no rush to do it, yet. I’ve still got some time before the day before that first game.”

If not for Wiggins’ glowing review on all things T-Wolves, the alarm bells would be ringing loudly here. But when asked if he had any doubts about Minnesota being the place for him, he said, “This is definitely where I want to be; definitely where I want to be.” And when asked if he would eventually sign the deal, he said, “Ah, eventually. I’m just going to take it day by day. There’s no rush to do it. We’re going through preseason and I’m all the way here in China.”
