LOS ANGELES -- Kansas freshman pheonom Andrew Wiggins announced today that he will declare for the NBA Draft. The 6-8 athletic forward is a potential No. 1 overall draft pick.
According to league sources, Wiggins is in the process of choosing between Hip Hop mogul Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports and one other unknown agency for player representation. Rich Paul, LeBron James’ agent, was rumored to be in the mix but we were informed Paul never recruited the forward.
Wiggins, 19, was the Big 12 Freshman of the Year and named Second Team All-American after posting averages of 17.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists.
He can become the second straight Canadian selected No. 1 overall after Anthony Bennett of the Cleveland Cavaliers was taken with the top pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.
