Andrew Wiggins becomes Minnesota Timberwolves' fourth all-time leading scorer

Andrew Wiggins is officially the Minnesota Timberwolves fourth all-time leading scorer in franchise history.

Wiggins now has 6,795 points, passing Wally Szczerbiak (6,777 points) on the Timberwolves' points leaderboard and is on pace to pass Kevin Love (6,989 points) to take over third place this season as well.

He trails only Sam Mitchell (7,161 points) and Kevin Garnett (19,201 points) on Minnesota's all-time leading scorers list, and while it's likely he'll catch Mitchell at some point in his career, he'll have to seriously pick up the pace if he is going to catch KG.

The Kansas-product has reached this point total in 349 games with the Timberwolves, averaging 19.5 points per game for his career. For perspective, Szczerbiak played 438 games (15.5 ppg) in seven seasons with the T'Wolves, while Mitchell played 757 games (9.5 ppg) in 10 seasons and Garnett played 970 games (19.8 ppg) in 14 seasons.

Wiggins finished with 20 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block tonight in the Timberwolves loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, falling to 13-13 on the season.

Wiggins has struggled so far this year, averaging career-lows with 15.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.7 free throw attempts and a 38.9 percent shooting percentage from the field.

But, he has now strung together three solid games in a row averaging 20.7 points on 52.1 percent shooting from the field to go with 5.3 rebounds per game.

Hopefully, seeing his name climb up on the franchises' all-time leading scorers list can give the Canadian-native the confidence he needs to get things going in the right direction this season.
