Why Andrew Wiggins did not pan out with the Timberwolves

One of the more notable moves from Thursday’s NBA trade deadline involved the Minnesota Timberwolves acquiring D’Angelo Russell from the Golden State Warriors for Andrew Wiggins and a couple of draft picks.

The Timberwolves now have just two players left on the roster from when President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas took over on May 1, 2019. Wiggins was the longest-tenured player on the team, having come aboard via a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers that sent Kevin Love from Minnesota to Cleveland.

Wiggins was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft by Cleveland before being dealt to Minnesota. His talent says he should be a star by now, but now close to six seasons into his career, he has just not been close.

So why didn’t Wiggins pan out in Minnesota? Let’s take a look at four obvious reasons.
