This day has been expected since the day he sent his letter of intent into Kansas, but it is now official. Andrew Wiggins has declared for the 2014 NBA Draft. But the potential No. 1 pick did say all the right things at his press conference, next to coach Bill Self. “At the end of the day, I decided I was going to enter the draft,” Wiggins said in a streamed press conference. ”It wasn’t an easy decision, because the fans showed me so much love.” Wiggins is potentially the No. 1 pick — he is currently on top of DraftExpress’s mock draft and isn’t lower than No. 2 on any team’s draft board that we have heard of. The only guy who could knock him out of the top spot is fellow Jayhawk Joel Embiid, and it depends on what NBA doctors say when they get a closer look at Embiid’s back (and which team wins the NBA draft lottery). Wiggins is the most hyped guy coming out of college since the Greg Oden/Kevin Durant draft. Wiggins is all about potential — he dominated at points at Kansas and showed stretches of his ridiculously high ceiling.
