The NBA training camp will start in less than two months but some players are still in limbo; not sure on where they would land when the season starts. Fortunately for Minnesota Timberwolves' #Andrew Wiggins, the owner of the franchise is willing to give him the maximum salary on one condition; to lay out his plans and confirm his commitment to the team. In a Twitter post by a reporter for the Associated Press, the GM wants a meeting with Wiggins before they can settle for the max cap.

Apparently, the team wants to build a roster of young shooters and they have seen Andrew Wiggins' incredible numbers.

That said, it looks like the trade on #Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers is off. The Timberwolves is one of the teams mentioned by Irving, but when news broke that the franchise can only talk about trades sans Andrew Wiggins, the fallout happened. The Cleveland Cavaliers will only trade if talks included Wiggins.

Andrew Wiggin's potential, stats, and options

According to the Bleacher report, Taylor saw the potential of Wiggins after the young player ranked 16th in the most number of points for the NBA Season 2016-2017. In all honesty, Wiggins is in the exact position Kyrie Irving wants to be and if he can make that promise to #Glen Taylor, he's in the best position to build an empire, free from the criticism of collaborating with big stars in order to win a championship.

According to the NBA, Wiggins significantly increased his scoring record averaging 23.6 points per game with 35.6 percent attempts on the three-point area.

But the Timberwolves franchise is not only capitalizing on Andrew Wiggins. In fact, acquiring Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls and the addition of Jamal Crawford and Taj Gibson to the roster means, they want it bad; the championship game at the Target Center.

Glen Taylor on the young Timberwolves star

In an interview with the Associated Press, which was featured on NBA.com, Glen Taylor said: "To me, by making this offer, I'm speculating that his contribution to the team will be more in the future. We've got to be better. He can't be paid just for what he's doing today. He's got to be better." The conviction on his belief that Andrew Wiggins can improve in time is there and he's clearly putting his money on that.

Apparently, Glen Taylor has so much trust for his young star that he can only hope he will follow through with the team's plan to build him. According to the report, Taylor did not comment on the ongoing trade talks with Kyrie Irving [VIDEO] but he did express confidence in seeing Wiggins team up with Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns.
