Kansas player, Andrew Wiggins declared that he would enter the 2014 NBA draft today after just one year at college. Wiggins has long been expected to make the jump to the professional ranks, but the question is now where will he go?
The Milwaukee Bucks are currently expected to have the worst record in the NBA with just a few games remaining. Should the NBA lottery go to form, which doesn't always happen, the Bucks will posses the number one pick this summer.
Wiggins has been touted as a number one pick ever since he left high school last year, but after one year at Kansas, can he live up to the hype?
This year's March Madness tournament has been noteworthy by the absence, for the most part, of the star freshmen in the latter stages. Kansas fell in the round of 32 to Stanford and Jabari Parker's Duke were defeated by Mercer in the second round.
Both players clearly have the athleticism and basketball skill to make it at the next level but can they make the jump right now in the way that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony did? Most suggest not.
The Bucks team this year has been designed to lose, they have young pieces but their main aim has been to finish right where they are and they need to select a sure-fire winner in this draft.
Throughout this season that sure-fire player has been Wiggins' Kansas teammate, Joel Embiid but after missing the tournament through injury, the Bucks could be tempted to instead plump for Wiggins or Parker. They could feed Giannis Antetokounmpo the ball and possibly develop into NBA stars in the meantime.
Where do you think Wiggins will go? Let us know in the comments.
