The Warriors and Andrew Wiggins have talked about a contract extension for their first-time All-Star, but so far, it’s a case of nothing doing.
Per The Athletic, discussions to this point have been “preliminary.”
Wiggins is die to make $33.6 million next season — but the deal is expiring, and as of now, he will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. Clearly, both sides are hopeful of changing that.
Wiggins, 27, is 6-foot-7 and averaged 17.2 points and 4.5 rebounds in 73 games in his second full year with Golden State. The former No. 1 overall pick spent the majority of his first six years with the Timberwolves.
“The way Andrew Wiggins played in the postseason, especially the NBA Finals, made keeping him a priority,” The Athletic reported. “There have been some preliminary discussions already, but nothing is imminent, per sources.”
