Hints emerge that Warriors’ Andrew Wiggins may be back in Bay Area

The Golden State Warriors have been relatively quiet during the NBA offseason, but hints have emerged that Andrew Wiggins may be returning to the Bay Area.

The Warriors acquired the former first overall pick in February as part of their trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves for D’Angelo Russell, but there have been few updates about Wiggins’ future since then.

However, recent reports indicate that Wiggins may be staying put in the Bay. Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors are “strongly considering” bringing back Wiggins next season.

The Warriors have already committed to re-signing Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, which suggests that the team is planning on keeping Wiggins as well.

Wiggins had a strong finish to the 2019-20 season with the Warriors, averaging 24.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists over his final 16 games. He also shot 39% from 3-point range during that stretch, a marked improvement from his career average of 33%.

It remains to be seen if Wiggins will be back in Golden State, but the signs are pointing in that direction. If the Warriors do decide to bring him back, it could give the team a much-needed boost heading into the 2020-21 season.
