    Default Andrew Wiggins Bandwagon

    What does it take to pry Andrew Wiggins from all the other teams looking him.

    Harrison Barnes was projected at the top overall pick coming out of high school, while he is still going to be a good pro, things can change. I have been high on Wiggins for two years now, he is a legit talent and will make the NBA as a first round pick for sure. It would be nice to have a home town kid on the team like him, but I will not endorse him being the saviour just yet.

    The kid is damn good though.

    Canadians are too nice, he's going to come to the Raptors Jamaal Magloire style (on the last legs of his career)

    First off, as many have pointed, way too much can happen in 2 years time to gauge what it would take to make that trade.

    Second, Andrew Wiggins is, at this point in time, the #1 pick in the 2015 Draft.
    (I think .. He's a Junior now in Highschool, so with one year at Kentucky, I think that puts him in 2015 and not 2014 as nbadraft.net has him.)
    With Jabari Parker getting injured, Wiggins can solidify himself as the Best High School player in the North America, and likely the Best Player of his age bracket, Period.

    So you should be asking what it would take to trade for the #1 pick.

    In that case, likely everything we CAN give up, and more.
    Unless we luck out with the #1 pick, or unless he completely fails in college and falls in the draft (not gonna happen), we ain't getting Wiggins.

    I like that attitude Joey. Embrace the thread and run with it. LOL. Actually, my worst nightmare has Houston getting our 1st round pick in the Wiggins draft year and then miraculously winning the top pick in the lottery. God, please no.

    My Ideal situation with that is, the obvious in which we dodge the Protected years because we're so amazing, and end up giving them a Late 1st Rounder 5 years from now.
    But the next best thing would be this year we compete down to the 82nd game for the 8th playoff spot, end up just missing out, and finishing with the 14th worst record in the league.
    Kyle Lowry for a #14 pick? Done and Done.

    The pick we've traded to Houston is no. 1 protected over the next five year, so no worries.

    Old = good. You got to see Toronto's last major championship team win live. Anyone 18 years or younger has no idea what that feels like

    I wouldn't be surprised if many went "Oh the Leafs....". Somehow I feel many forget about the Jays....which was an amazing experience.
