Adreian Payne    F  Timberwolves

 

 

Adreian Payne is close to an agreement with the Magic. He declined a $900K offer to play in China, so he looks like he'll try to get on an NBA roster at camp. Orlando is a good choice for Payne with only three centers ahead of him, but he probably wouldn't get minutes unless there are several injuries.

Shabazz Muhammad    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

The Wolves are trying to convince Shabazz Muhammad to re-sign with them. The most the Wolves can offer is the minimum, so they are at a disadvantage compared to a number of other teams. Muhammad is 24 years old and could still get better, but his scoring and playing time have decreased in each of the last two seasons.

Andrew Wiggins    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

Wolves owner Glen Taylor said he's going to sign Andrew Wiggins to a max deal in the near future. The Wolves have been linked to Kyrie Irving, but Taylor also confirmed that Wiggins isn't going anywhere. The deadline for a rookie extension isn't until Oct. 16, but it sounds like the two sides are already finalizing the details of a five-year deal worth roughly $150 million. Wiggins is an elite scorer with 23.6 points per game in 2016-17, but he will need to become more versatile to take the next step as a fantasy player -- he averaged just 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.3 treys in over 37 minutes per game.

Karl-Anthony Towns    F/C  Timberwolves

 

 

Karl-Anthony Towns said the Wolves have made great moves this summer and that he's "very fortunate" to be with such a "great franchise." Towns is eligible for a contract extension next summer, so Wolves fans should be thrilled that KAT is happy with the direction of the franchise. "I think we are building a team that has a great sense of what it wants to be, and also adding players who ooze greatness and ooze winning, it’s just something that is contagious," he said. KAT is only scratching the surface of his potential at the age of 21 and has yet to miss an NBA game, so you could make a strong case for taking him with the No. 1 pick in standard 9-cat leagues.

Andrew Wiggins    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

The Timberwolves have offered Andrew Wiggins an extension. Wiggins has recently been linked to some trade rumors involving Kyrie Irving, but the Timberwolves reportedly rebuffed those offers, and the team offering him an extension falls in line with the narrative that Minnesota has zero interest in moving the 22-year-old swingman. Details on exactly what was offered have not yet been reported, but it's likely a five-year deal in the $148 million range.

Melo Trimble    G  Timberwolves

 

 

Melo Trimble has agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with the Timberwolves. Trimble suited up for the 76ers at Summer League where he recorded averages of 10.3 points and 1.3 steals per game in 13.7 minutes a night, and now he'll try and make an impression with the Wolves over the course of training camp. Minnesota has room on the roster, so maybe he'll be able to make the regular-season squad as the third-string point guard, but he won't have any value in fantasy hoops while the team is at full strength.

In trade talks with the Wolves, the Cavs have requested a package of Andrew Wiggins and "something of substance" in exchange for Kyrie Irving, according to Darren Wolfson of ESPN. Unsurprisingly, the Wolves are reportedly not interested in giving up Wiggins plus additional pieces to land Irving. Cleveland's demands have been very high since word leaked that Irving had requested a trade. We shall see if the price drops as the Cavs get closer to training camp. As for Wiggins, it appears he is on the verge of signing a five-year, $148 million contract extension with Minnesota.

Andrew Wiggins    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said on Friday that the team plans to sign Andrew Wiggins to a five-year maximum contract extension. The deadline for a rookie extension is Oct. 16, but it appears a deal will get done sooner rather than later. "First of all, I think he likes it here, we like him, he can get the very best contract from me, better than he can get from anyone else," said Taylor. "I don’t think we have any trouble of offering him the max anyway." Wiggins new extension will pay him approximately $150 million over five seasons, beginning in 2018-19.
