Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins hasn’t played one college game yet but he’s already projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft. The basketball sensation has drawn comparisons to Lebron James and is expected to be a huge game changer. In fact there’s already jokes about teams “tanking for Wiggins”. While we don’t know exactly where he’ll end up due to the NBA lottery, it’s already clear what team Wiggins wants to play for. Read more after the jump.
Wiggins, hailing from Vaughan, Ontario, was asked which NBA team would be the best fit for him and didn’t hesitate to spurt out the only NBA team currently residing in Canada.
“I would like to say the Raptors because I want to play for them,” Wiggins said, via Sportsnet.ca.
If Wiggins plays for the Raptors similarly to the way Derrick Rose plays for his hometown Chicago Bulls, it’d be a perfect marriage given the fanbase. Even though Wiggins hasn’t laced up for an NCAA game, it’s not a far assumption to say folks in Toronto will be crossing their fingers for the right ping pong ball next spring.
