After leading Kansas this season, averaging 17.1 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 1.5 APG, 1 BPG, 1.2 SPG, the Vaughan, Ontario product told media in a Kansas press conference he is ready for the next level.

Kansas completed the 2013-2014 campaign with a 25-10 record, ending their season with a loss against Stanford in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Wiggins ended his NCAA career on a low, finishing with four points against the Cardinal, however had multiple highs including a 41-point outburst, followed by 30 points against West Virginia and OK St in March, leading up to the NCAA tournament.

The Canadian star is widely regarded as a top-3 NBA draft pick, with a good chance of being drafted #1 overall.

If Wiggins is indeed selected #1 overall, that would make back-to-back Canadian NBA draft picks with the top spot, as Anthony Bennett was drafted #1 to Cleveland in the 2013 draft.

Bennett told North Pole Hoops last year, “Hopefully next year too with Wiggins.”

Ennis recently made his decision to enter the draft, and you could expect Nik Stauskas to do the same in the near future–another potential lottery pick.

In the 2014 NBA draft, a remarkable three Canadians could be selected in the lottery (1-14).
