Wiggins video shows Wolves star hasn’t been on vacation while in Las Vegas
Reigning rookie of the year Andrew Wiggins was in Las Vegas for NBA Summer League the past couple of weeks, but he wasn’t playing with the Minnesota Timberwolves’ team.
The second-year rising star was eligible to be on the squad but didn’t participate. Still, he wasn’t in Sin City for a desert vacation.
Wiggins was out on the practice floor improving his game, both with the Wolves and with personal trainer Drew Hanlen. On Wednesday morning, Hanlen, a skills coach who has also worked with Minnesota’s Zach LaVine and Anthony Bennett, posted a video to his Twitter account showing some of the moves — and dunks — Wiggins is refining.
In the tweet, he said, “My bro @22wiggins has been putting in serious work this summer! Here’s a sneak peak at what we’ve been working on!”
Last year, Wiggins started all 82 games for the Timberwolves and averaged 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists. He shot 43.7 percent from the field, including 31.0 percent on 3-pointers.
