The Philadelphia 76ers have made Andrew Wiggins their top target for the draft following a 22-game losing streak, reports CBS Sports.
Sitting rock bottom of the Atlantic division and currently holding the second worst record in the entire NBA league, the Sixers are starting to look towards the draft with anticipation.
Currently, they have a 19.9 percent chance of landing a top pick and the man they want is none other than Kansas Jayhawks star Wiggins.
As reported by ESPN.com, Wiggins has been on top of the 76ers board all year, but as they sunk towards the bottom of the league, thanks to their remarkable losing streak, attaining him has become a real possibility.
While it is still unlikely they will get the top pick in the weighted lottery, there are other options like Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid and Julius Randle, who could be chosen before Wiggins by other teams.
It all means that as long as the 76ers get a top five pick, they stand a realistic chance of landing Wiggins, who they think is a perfect complement to Michael Carter-Williams, Nerlens Noel, and Thaddeus Young as they look to build an athletic team.
While Embiid looks to be emerging as the No.1 overall pick for most teams, Philadelphia want the super-star material that often comes with a wing player.
The 79ers are currently two games ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks, who, if they finish bottom, will have a 25% chance of getting the top pick.
