Despite the superb tanking effort put forth by Philadelphia, the Milwaukee Bucks still currently hold the pole position for the No. 1 pick. While they could use help at just about any position, Andrew Wiggins makes the most sense for them given his ability to put the ball in the hoop. The Bucks actually have a relatively serviceable backcourt; Brandon Knight is just 22 years old, O.J. Mayo is not nearly as bad as he has looked this year, and Giannis Antetokounmpo (AKA the Greek Freak) is probably the best prospect on the team. This is a group that desperately needs an infusion of scoring (Knight and Ramon Sessions are their top two offensive players), and Wiggins represents their best chance at finding someone who can reliably put the ball in the basket while also being a strong defender.
The much-hyped Canadian finished the season strong, scoring 41, 30, 22, and 19 points in four consecutive games before a poor performance in their NCAA Tournament loss to Stanford.
