There's nothing on record from Wolves rising star Andrew Wiggins, but local insider Darren Wolfson told 1500 ESPN that the 23-year-old swingman isn't happy with his role on the team.
As Wolfson put it, Wiggins, who signed a maximum extension worth $148 million before the season, has "whispered to his teammates" about being the third scoring option behind Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns.
"He doesn't like being third fiddle," said Wolfson. "Wiggins could potentially seek to get out during the offseason. Now it's not close to that point....he doesn't even have, technically an agent on record right now."
Since Jimmy Butler suffered a torn meniscus Feb. 23 against the Rockets, Wiggins has responded with an increased scoring touch, averaging 20.7 points, up from his season average of 17.9 points per game.
Wolfson also is on record saying Butler "will be back this year," whether it's late in the regular season or in the playoffs, so long as the Wolves don't fade late and miss the postseason for a 14th consecutive season.
Minnesota is off until playing the Spurs and Rockets back-to-back Saturday and Sunday.
