Andrew Wiggins is Getting a Fresh Start With Golden State Warriors The Golden State Warriors recently traded D’Angelo Russell, Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Andrew Wiggins, a 2021 protected first-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick. As of this writing,
Wiggins (plus-3.6 Offensive Box Plus/Minus) has played well with the Warriors, averaging 23.0 points, 4.0 assists, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 1.7 blocks in 33.0 minutes over three games. The problem is that his team is really struggling.
Wiggins joined a Warriors team that will be very competitive next year. This season, not so much! Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are still out with serious injuries and the Warriors will have two months to determine if Wiggins fits with Draymond Green, Eric Paschall and the rest of the team and if he can thrive with them in the 2020-21 season.
The 24-year-old did improve his shot selection with the Timberwolves this season but as a former No. 1 overall pick, everyone had extremely high expectations for him. No one can question his talent… the change of scenery and a different attitude can do wonders for him.
Andrew Wiggins was averaging 22.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 34.6 minutes over 42 games with the Timberwolves this season, shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 33.1 percent on a career-high 6.5 attempts from distance. Who will provide offense for the Warriors other than Wiggins?
The Warriors average just 106.3 points per game (26th in the NBA) and they lost D’Angelo Russell (23.6 points), Alec Burks (16.1 points), Glenn Robinson III (12.9 points) and Willie Cauley-Stein (7.9 points and 6.2 rebounds). Their only addition was Wiggins and at 12-43, making the playoffs is impossible, it’s time to start thinking about next year.
