Saw the news below on twitter and apparently Andrew Wiggins father Mitchell Wiggins spoke to team Canada today and they showed their appreciation for him on twitter.

Maybe this was a small consolation prize for Andrew not participating in U-19 tryouts, but the elder Wiggins is also a scout for team Canada so there is some precedence there as well. Wiggins was a former pro player who went through some interesting things during his long career.
Does Andrew Wiggins deserve to already be talked about going #1 in the Draft next year? http://t.co/qJCzvTA7U4

Andrew Wiggins is being talked about as the number one pick in next year’s draft and for good reason; he has developed his skills and athleticism to an elite level and he would have been the top pick in this year’s draft.
Once Andrew Wiggins goes #1 next year will it be the first time ever a condian goes #1 two years in a row?
