Minnesota Timberwolves: Top 30 Scorers in Franchise History

18 of 31

#14 – Andrew Wiggins

Despite winning the Rookie of the Year award with ease, Wiggins wasn’t a terribly good offensive player as a rookie.

Of course, he was 19 years old for much of the season and even though he was the first-overall selection in the 2014 draft, everything is relative when we’re factoring in his age and everything that the Wolves were asking him to do as a teenager. But think about this: he won’t turn 21 until late February of 2016 and he’s already 35th in scoring in Timberwolves history.

And thus far as a sophomore, he’s shown an incredible knack to get to the free throw line whenever he wants. What was already an impressive free throw rate of .410 as a rookie is .459 through 28 games in his second season. While he’s shooting just 28.8 from beyond the arc thus far in his career, he’s a 75.9 percent free thrower and has an impressive arsenal of post moves and a solid pull-up jumper.

He’s still figuring out how to use all of his tools (his assist rate is painfully low and he hasn’t been much of a play-maker at all), his turnover rate is impressively low (just 10.4 percent this year) and he’s shown large strides thus far in his second season.

The talent and athleticism is there, and the basketball I.Q. will eventually catch up. By this time next year, he will surely be a top-1o scorer in Timberwolves history.
