The Golden State Warrior won the 2022 NBA Championship, getting things back on track after two seasons of missing the postseason. During that time, Golden State was able to acquire a ton of talent and is set up to succeed in the long-term as well.
One of those players acquired was Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins landed in Golden State, along with a first-round pick, in a swap with the Minnesota Timberwolves, who received D’Angelo Russell. Wiggins has benefited greatly from the change of scenery.
Since joining the Warriors, Wiggins has begun realizing the immense potential that led to him being selected first overall in the 2014 NBA Draft. He made his first All-Star game this season and was arguably the team’s most consistent performer throughout their 2022 postseason run.
However, there is a chance that his time in Golden State could be coming to an end in the near future.

The Warriors have never been shy about spending money if it meant that they would keep winning, but we saw this offseason that there is a line not even they can cross. Otto Porter Jr. and Gary Payton II both departed in free agency, which is something they will be facing with Wiggins in 2023.
Set to be an unrestricted free agent, ownership may not be able to afford to pay Wiggins what very well could be a max contract. Jordan Poole is extension eligible this summer, while James Wiseman will be next for an extension next summer.
If there is a chance Wiggins is made available, his market will be robust. Numerous teams will want a shot at acquiring him. Where could he end up?
Here are three potential Wiggins suitors to monitor long-term.
