Rookie of the year Wiggins on MN: 'I hope I'm here forever'

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Andrew Wiggins sat down on a black leather couch, his navy blue tuxedo jacket and bow tie bunching up at the neck as his 6-foot-8 frame plopped down for a break.

The first rookie of the year in Minnesota Timberwolves history was sitting in a no-frills room in the back alleys of Target Center with cinder block walls and empty lockers that house the WNBA's Lynx in the summer. There is nothing fancy about the 25-year-old building that is home to an NBA franchise that has gotten so many things wrong over the last decade.

In Wiggins, the hope is that the Timberwolves finally got something right in a big way. And as difficult as his first season was for the team on the court, as hopeless as it has seemed at times for the team's fans during an 11-year playoff drought, Wiggins said he feels like he got it right by landing here as well.
