Andrew Wiggins has played two games at Kansas. Two games! But that hasn't stopped front office personnel and players from singing his praises. Prior to last night's game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports caught up with Kevin Durant and during their conversation, Wiggins' name came up. Here is Durant's assessment of the 18-year-old:
“[Wiggins is] raw, but his ceiling is high. He can be like a Hall of Famer, All-Star, for sure. He’s good,”
Wiggins hasn't played a single NBA game, but Durant already believes the Thornhill, ON. product could be destined for the Springfield, Mass. That's some pretty high praise, especially since it's coming from a probable future Hall of Famer in KD. Since his high school days where he posted 23.6 points and 11.3 rebounds per game, according to Max Preps, everyone has been going wild for Wiggins and with good reason. We're going to be talking about this kid for years to come. *fingers crossed*
So far, Wiggins is averaging 19.0 points and 5.5 rebounds on 58.3 percent shooting in two games as a member of the Jayhawks.
