The Golden State Warriors still owe Andrew Wiggins a lot of money

After ten NBA seasons, including five spent with the Golden State Warriors, Andrew Wiggins is returning to the league.

The former Kansas standout finished the season with 71 games played, averaging 13.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 35.8% from three-point range and 45.3% from the field.

After helping Golden State win the NBA Championship in 2022, he was given a $109 million contract that offseason.

Over the course of the next two seasons, the Warriors will owe Wiggins at least $54 million.

Additionally, he has a $30 million option that expires in 2027.

Consequently, the Warriors might be liable for up to $84 million.

Despite Wiggins’ immense importance to the Warriors, his recent season’s output raises some red flags.

Wiggins would make a great trade candidate during the offseason, according to Evan Sidery.

Via Sidery: “The Warriors are expected to actively shop Andrew Wiggins in trade talks this offseason.

Wiggins has $84.7 million remaining on his contract over the next three years.

With the emergence of Jonathan Kuminga, Golden State will attempt to offload Wiggins for a better fit.”

In addition to being the first choice in the 2014 NBA Draft, Wiggins, 29, spent a portion of six seasons as a player for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Throughout 706 regular season games, the 2022 NBA All-Star has averaged 18.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.0 steals per game while shooting 35.4% from three-point range and 44.9% from the field.

In addition, he has played in 40 NBA postseason games.
