Timberwolves turn focus toward Andrew Wiggins extension

The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to lock up forward Andrew Wiggins, and a contract extension to keep him in Minneapolis could be worth almost $150 million, according to head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Wiggins has one season remaining on his rookie deal. However, he could be in line to receive a five-year contract extension worth upwards of $150 million.

Larkin was the 18th overall selection in 2013 National Basketball Association draft, and he averaged 5.8 points in three seasons in the National Basketball Association with three different teams (Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets). According to the reports, he could get $30.6 million if he will be part of an All-NBA team or would be named as the Defensive Player of the Year, CBS Sports shared.

Militants linked to so-called Islamic State have been occupying parts of Marawi, a city in the south, since May. Senate Minority Floor Leader Franklin Drilon said there is no evidence of rebellion in Mindanao.

Last week, Thibodeau told ESPN that Wiggins' goal for the 2017-18 season should be to become a "complete player" and said trade acquisition Jimmy Butler could help with that development.

The Globe and Mail referred to Wiggins as the "Prodigal Son" and he is always a hot ticket at the ACC whenever he is in town to play against the Raptors.

The team hopes to make it to the play offs this season.

Wiggins averaged a career-high 23.6 points to go with 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steals per game last season.
