Wiggins to win rookie honour
MINNEAPOLIS — Andrew Wiggins started his NBA career at the front of his rookie class. He finished his first season there, too.
The Minnesota Timberwolves’ forward will be named rookie of the year Thursday, a source told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. The native of Vaughan, Ont., averaged 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds while playing all 82 games as a rookie and averaged 39 minutes per game for a team that was routinely missing five, six, even eight players a night to injury.
