Andrew Wiggins has signed a five-year contract extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the National Basketball Association club announced on Wednesday, tying down the 22-year-old forward through the 2022/23 campaign. Towns is entering the third year of his deal that includes a club option for the 2017-18 campaign and a $10.1 million qualifying offer for the season after that.

In the same statement, Wiggins called himself "very excited" to continue his career with the Wolves.

Wiggins, who was traded to Minnesota in 2014 after the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted him No. 1 overall, has tremendous leverage in negotiations.

Minnesota owner Glen Taylor also wanted to sit down and meet with Wiggins to openly discuss their expectations and hopes for the Timberwolves' future. The 22-year-old averaged a career-high 23.6 points per game and shot a career-best 35.6 percent from three-point range during the 2016-17 season.

The Chief Minister has asked the DDC to examine whether the hike was justified, could it have been avoided, was the Delhi Metro operating at optimum capacity or whether there were areas of inefficiency in its operations.

"Just making sure we're both committed toward this", Wiggins told reporters.

Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN reported on September 18 Wiggins and the Timberwolves were expected to have a five-year, $148 million deal finalized last month.

"I'm pleased that we've reached an agreement with Andrew on a contract extension", Taylor said in a press release announcing the contract. "Andrew is among the elite young talents in our league and the sky is the limit for him". It's not immediately clear if that's the deal that was signed. There are rules in place that protect agents and Duffy hinted at agent tampering right after being let go. Wiggins and the Wolves have been expected to agree to terms on this deal for quite some time, and now it's official.
