    Yes man, you don't consider this, you do it. I love Demar, but if you are not sold on Wiggins you need to watch more of him. He hasn't exactly took over the NCAA but you can see the potential just oozing out of him. I really think he is gonna be a great player, and although I'd love to see Demar on this team for years to come, I'd make that trade. All else being equal, we would still be very competitive if that were to happen IMO.
    That's the part that scares me. He's got so much potential, from physical gifts to natural talent to skills he's trained for, but he hasn't shown that he wants to be great yet. That part is what concerns me about Wiggins. You can tell Parker wants to be the best player on the floor each night, but Wiggins is just so laid back it's like he isn't even trying.

    Most mock NBA drafts for 2014 show Wiggins going 2nd or 3rd.
    If bottom of standings remain the same as today...Philadelphia picks second and Orlando picks 3rd.
    Personally I think Philadelphia would most likely keep their pick but Orlando may be a different story.

    Besides our 1st rounder in 2014, we have our 1st in 2015 and two 1st in 2016. Would four 1st rounders be enough
    to make a deal happen?


    Assuming Wiggins is still the player a lot of people felt we should tank for ,what kind of package of players and/or draft picks would be enough to acquire Wiggins if the opportunity presents itself.
    No of course. Why would they trade Wiggins for 4 mediocre firsts.

    As far as what would I offer... pretty much anything.

    Wiggins game is not suited to the college level, whereas Parker's is. The open floor and ease at which he out runs everyone can be effectively used. This has happened many times in the past, think MCW and Drummond for recent examples.

    Wiggins is also a 2 way player.

    Wiggins also has shut down Parker, while dropping 22 on him.

    Wiggins also frequently takes over late game when his team needs him, but plays within the system for the majority of the game and plays hard D...not unlike many stars

    After some thought, I would give up a whole lot to pair Wiggins with Ross and Val.

    Basically DD+2 firsts+3 Seconds+Amir for just Wiggins and crap would be available from me.

    I would give up "The Wookie of the year's" Twig and berries.

    Thats what I'd give up for Andrew Wiggans. Pretty big sacrifice no?
