Star forward Andrew Wiggins has signed a multiyear contract extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

While the T-Wolves have not announced terms of the deal, owner Glen Taylor told the Associated Press in August that he had offered Wiggins a five-year, $146.5 million extension.

"I'm very excited to continue my career with the Timberwolves," Wiggins said in a statement released by the team. "I love it here. The fans and organization have supported me from my first day here in Minnesota. I want to thank Glen Taylor, Tom Thibodeau, the entire coaching staff and my teammates for believing in me. We've had some good times over the last three seasons, but the best is yet to come. I look forward to doing right by them and bringing this team to the postseason."

The 22-year-old has become one of the Timberwolves' stars, alongside center Karl-Anthony Towns and newly acquired All-Star guard Jimmy Butler.

Last season, he averaged 23.5 points a game.
