Andrew Wiggins has been busy this offseason working on his game in preparation for the 2019-20 season. While working out and training in Los Angeles, the Minnesota Timberwolves star has found himself running into a little bit of trouble with some amateur burglars.

Wiggins home in Los Angeles was burglarized where his rented SUV was stolen.

Per TMZ:

Former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins was burglarized in Los Angeles … and TMZ Sports has learned the thieves made off with the NBA star’s shoes and luggage…

But, we’re told cops described the scene as “amateur hour” … because the burglars left jewelry and other valuables in the heist, and only took about $1,000 worth of the stuff instead.

We’re told the thieves stole a pair of Wiggins’ casual Nikes and his luggage — and also made off with his rental SUV Escalade. But, we’re told authorities were able to locate the vehicle a short time later.

It does seem quite odd that they would break in just to steal a pair of shoes, some clothes and then a car to get away in. The car has since been located, unfortunately the thieves have not been found and therefore no arrests have been made yet.

It’s unlikely that Wiggins will get to see those items again, that tends to be the case most times in these sorts of incidents. The Timberwolves star will be at least relieved that the thieves didn’t steal more of Wiggins’ valuable items instead.

Andrew Wiggins will be aiming to take the Timberwolves into playoff contention since Jimmy Butler left the franchise last season, Minnesota will be relying a lot more on both Wiggings and Karl-Anthony Towns. The Western Conference is extremely competitive right now so the Timberwolves will need to make some big changes and improvements if they’re to finish inside the top eight.
