Timberwolves sign Andrew Wiggins and Trey Burke signs with Knicks

The two biggest National Basketball Association rumors from today are the Minnesota Timberwolves have officially signed Andrew Wiggins and Trey Burke is now on the New York Knicks. He averaged a career-high 23.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 82 games last season while also making a career-best 103 3-pointers on a career-high 35.6 shooting percentage beyond the arc.

The team does not disclose terms because of a self-imposed policy, but owner Glen Taylor has talked all offseason about the possibility of a rookie max deal, which would pay Wiggins $148 million.

That's natural for any young player like the 22-year-old Wiggins.

"I definitely do", Wiggins told Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated in July.

"We feel strongly that he is just scratching the surface of the player he will become", said head coach and president Tom Thibodeau in the press release. "I love it here".

However, in the case of the No. 1 pick of the 2014 draft, the gulf between performance to date and perceived potential is unusually large.

"I'm pleased that we've reached an agreement with Andrew on a contract extension", Taylor said in a statement.

Connor McDavid will become the highest paid National Hockey League player next year with the average annual value of his contract at just $12.5 million per season. "I look forward to doing right by them and bringing this team to the postseason".
