Andrew Wiggins Prefers the Philadelphia 76ers

If the Philadelphia 76ers landed the first overall pick in this month’s NBA Draft, there’s a very good chance Andrew Wiggins would have been the top pick. Instead, the Sixers were awarded the third overall pick, but Wiggins still may be available when it’s their turn on the clock.

If it was up to Wiggins, he’d find a way to end up alongside Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, according to ESPN’s Chad Ford.

This is a dream scenario for the 76ers. They would take Wiggins at No. 1 if they could, and having him fall to No. 3 would be a godsend. The Sixers actually have engaged the Cavs about moving to No. 1. They aren’t willing to give up both the Nos. 3 and 10 picks. But a combination of No. 3 and Thaddeus Young is a possibility. And it’s a great scenario for Wiggins, as well. Of the three top teams, his camp prefers the Sixers as the best possible fit.

The Sixers already have a young point guard and a young center, so adding a young wing could complete their future “Big 3”.
