Andrew Wiggins says he feels good about a max contract offer that is sitting in front of him with the Minnesota Timberwolves. But he's in no rush to get it signed.

Wiggins says he is going over the five-year, $148 million offer from the Wolves deliberately to make sure everything is where he wants it before he signs. He is being extra careful because he is operating without an agent after parting ways with Bill Duffy and BDA Sports in August.
    
Wiggins says he has only positive things to say about Duffy. But he made the decision "from a business point of view." He says he is leaning on parents, who were both high-profile athletes.
    
He says he appreciates the level of commitment the Timberwolves have shown and wants to be in Minnesota for the long term.
