Several teams around the league checked in with the Minnesota Timberwolves last month in regards to possibly trading for small forward Andrew Wiggins, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Atheltic.

Talks never got serious, though, as teams were just doing their due diligence on Wiggins and seeing if the Timberwolves were ready to give up on him and part ways with his massive contract.

Wiggins signed a lucrative five-year, $147.7 million maximum contract extension with Minnesota in the summer of 2017, but he hasn't lived up to the expectations of that deal.

Several teams checked in with the Wolves last month on Andrew Wiggins, wondering if they would be willing to unload his max contract for pennies on the dollar, sources said. But there were never any substantive offers or interest that was considered legitimate, more just the due diligence that most teams conduct.

The Wolves remain committed to getting Wiggins to improve on his consistency, believing that is a key to their prospects of long-term success

In 48 games this season for the Timberwolves, Andrew Wiggins is averaging 17.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per contest. The former No. 1 overall pick is shooting just 39.6 percent from the field, 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 72.0 percent from the free-throw line.

The fans in Minnesota are growing tired of Wiggins. The swingman has even been booed at home this season.
