The drama surrounding the Minnesota Timberwolves these past 24 hours has been certifiably insane.
First, it was the news that All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler wanted out of Minnesota due to a supposed rift between himself and Karl-Anthony Towns. Then it was rumored that that rift was caused by Butler getting with KAT’s girlfriend (!!!)
And after all of that, Andrew Wiggins wasn’t content just sitting out of the spotlight amid all the drama, as his brother Nick had to get himself and Andrew involved via Twitter.
It hasn’t been much of a secret that Butler and Wiggins haven’t seen eye to eye during Jimmy Buckets’ tenure in Minny, so when news leaked that Butler had requested a trade, Nick Wiggins took straight to Twitter to voice his jubilation over the situation unfolding.
Wiggins took on a reduced role with the Wolves last season after the acquisition of Butler via trade, and struggled somewhat compared to previous seasons. Maybe Andrew’s brother was just happy Andrew would be second fiddle again behind Towns? Who knows.
