Wiggins to Not Play For Canada in the Olympics


Andrew Wiggins will not play for Canada in the Olympic qualifying tournament this July, instead preferring to spend his summer gearing up for his third season with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Wiggins, 21, said on Friday that he spent a lot of time thinking about the decision, but it was one he felt he had to make to ensure he was ready to try and help push the Wolves into the playoffs for the first time in 12 years.
