Before the 2013-14 college basketball season, Andrew Wiggins was being declared the unanimous No. 1 overall pick for the 2014 NBA Draft. Part of that was because Jabari Parker battled a foot injury during his senior season in high school, and another part of that was because…well…he’s Andrew Wiggins.
One college basketball season later, and we’re pretty much still here — there’s Wiggins, Parker and then everyone else. Joel Embiid has stormed the up NBA Draft boards, but because of a recent injury he’ll likely be bypassed in the first few picks.
And if Wiggins’ 17 points, six assists (per game) and numerous highlights on SportsCenter during his one year stint at Kansas wasn’t enough to sell you on his worth on draft day, maybe this pre-draft workout video of him will:
Wiggins will probably be off the board after the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks (picks No. 1 and No. 2, respectively) make their selections. If he’s still there at No. 3, the Philadelphia 76ers could come away with the biggest steal of the draft. And with the Sixers selecting No. 3 overall, that’s saying a whole lot about how good Wiggins is.
