Following weeks of building anticipation, the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday morning finally agreed to terms on a five-year, $146.5 million extension with forward Andrew Wiggins.

The average value of the contract, $29.6 million, kicks in next year and will make Wiggins the highest-paid Canadian athlete ever. "Andrew is among the elite young talents in our league and the sky is the limit for him". Another note from the Wolves: Wiggins is already sixth on the franchise's all-time scoring list with 4,995 points. Wiggins, still just 22 years old, has had his critics dating all the way back to his one season in Lawrence, Kansas, and carried over to his National Basketball Association days with the Wolves.
