The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

MANKATO, MINN. — Min­nesota Tim­ber­wolves owner Glen Tay­lor says he is ready to give An­drew Wig­gins a max con­tract ex­ten­sion on his rookie deal worth close to $150 mil­lion.

Tay­lor says he first wants a face-to­face meet­ing with Wig­gins to hear from the for­mer No. 1 over­all pick that he is ready to com­mit to the or­ga­ni­za­tion and take his game to an­other level.

Tay­lor spoke with the Vaughan, Ont., na­tive briefly when the two at­tended as­sis­tant coach Ryan Saun­ders’ wed­ding in July. The owner has al­ways pre­ferred to close deals with hand­shakes and frank con­ver­sa­tions.

Wig­gins’ scor­ing num­bers have im­proved in each of his first three sea­sons.

He av­er­aged 23.6 points per game and shot 35.6 per cent from 3-point range last sea­son.
