Heading into this season, KansasAndrew Wiggins has been heralded as the top prize of the upcoming 2014 draft. Does he make sense for the Milwaukee Bucks?

At only 18 years of age, Wiggins already has all of the NBA ready attributes a team would want. He has great defensive instinct and is no slouch on the offensive end, where his numbers and shooting percentage continue to improve. In a draft with several potential future All-Stars, Wiggins may have the highest ceiling of all.

The Bucks’ small forward position is currently reserved for a developing Giannis Antetokounmpo, but adjustments can be made. At 6-foot-8, Wiggins would be able to make an immediate impact on the front line along with Larry Sanders and John Henson.

The Bucks cannot go wrong by selecting Wiggins in this year’s draft. For two years, Wiggins has been the talk of this draft and the time is finally approaching. When the biggest con is that he may not fit well within in the current system, that’s an easy problem to fix — adjust the system to ensure your best player reaches his greatest potential.

It is likely that after all the “who goes first” debate, Wiggins will be the first name called. That said, will the ping pong balls favor the Bucks? That is the real question. Does Wiggins make sense for the Bucks heading into the draft? Definitely.
