Let me preface with this. I do not believe in tanking, because I believe in karma. Tanking is bad karma which should be avoided.
For the Toronto Raptors though, the idea of having home grown Canadian Andrew Wiggins play for them has to be quite alluring.
Man I wish, hope and pray that Raptors get the #1 pick next year in the lottery and pick Andrew Wiggins

Wiggins is a proud Canadian and has said in the past that he’d like to win Canada a gold medal in the Olympics one day. Getting one at the Rio Olympics could be a tall order, but if anyone is capable it is Wiggins.
Bucks should tank next season to get the number 1 pick and draft Andrew Wiggins. #phenom

So let me be clear, I am not saying the Raptors SHOULD tank next year, but I am saying that they will probably think about it.
Or at least encourage Rudy Gay to have a minor “ankle injury” soon after the Raptors are no longer in playoff contention
I mean, if there was ever a season to be really, really, REALLY bad, this is it. #AndrewWiggins
