Wolves’ Glen Taylor Not Ready to Give Up on Andrew Wiggins

The Minnesota Timberwolves have had a busy offseason from trying to work out a new deal for Karl-Anthony Towns to having their offer rejected by Jimmy Butler, the offseason has been kind of a roller coaster for the franchise.

Heading into the 2028-2019 season, Minnesota is hoping that Andrew Wiggins can put a poor season behind him and get back to playing to his potential.

Timberwolves team owner Glen Taylor isn’t ready to give up on the young Wiggins.

“I just think you want to take a person and not give up on them when they’re that young, no matter what. I just think you have to be really careful not to give up on him,” Taylor said, during an appearance on 1500 ESPN (h/t theScore’s William Lou).

“You can look at a lot of players, and it took them three or four years to get better, and they keep getting better from the experience and the confidence. I don’t see why Andrew won’t be one of those people because he has such natural ability.”
