Andrew Wiggins arrived in Minnesota shortly after J.J. Barea left the Timberwolves, so they never got the opportunity to play together.
But Wiggins introduced himself to Barea Wednesday night, but instead of a handshake he shook the rim, buzzing over Barea's head on his way to a huge slam dunk.
Wiggins, along with fellow Wolves forward Anthony Bennett, are playing for Canada at this year's FIBA Americas, which serves as the qualifier for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
Bennett had a double-double and Wiggins led the way with 20 points as Canada defeated Puerto Rico 78-72 to win the Continental Cup, which is basically a tune-up for the FIBA Americas, according to Pro Basketball Talk.
Barea plays for Puerto Rico.
Rubio: Wiggins has MVP potential
“I think Wiggins is going to be an MVP one day,” Ricky Rubio said in an interview with Rappler. “He’s a great player, [has] fit in this league very well since day one, and I think as a team we’re really young but we’re adding some veterans that’s going to help us to grow up and follow where we’re going to go - going to make the playoffs.”
