Wiggins Thrilled to Reunite With Bennett, Thompson

on

Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, is thrilled to reunite with fellow Canadians Anthony Bennett and Tristan Thompson on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“Great thing for Toronto, great thing for Canada, actually,” Wiggins said. “Before this, no player from Canada has been No. 1, and now we have two back‑to‑back No. 1s.  So it’s a huge accomplishment for Canada. It just opens so much more doors for all the kids in Canada, just international basketball by itself, and I’m just looking to playing it for my fellow Canadians, A.B. and Tristan. … I played with Tristan for a summer AAU, and I played with Anthony for a while on the AAU circuit and the national level, too.  So I’m just excited.  You know, the chemistry is already there with those guys.  I played with them already.  So I think big things are to come.”
