Raptors fans will love this. Canadian hoops phenom Andrew Wiggins, expected to be selected first overall in the draft next summer, revealed Tuesday that, given his druthers, he'd like to play at home. After winning the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year Award Tuesday, Wiggins told esnewsreporting.com he wants to win a national championship at Kansas, would love to play Kobe Bryant one-on-one and considers Michael Jordan the greatest ever, before talk turned to his preferred NBA home. "I would like to say the Raptors, I want to play for them," said Wiggins, who has been spotted many times sporting a Raptors cap. The team would need quite a bit of lottery luck in order to make Wiggins' wish come true, but there's always free agency down the line. Wiggins, a Thornhill native, averaged 23.4 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game for Huntington Prep in West Virginia in his final high school season. Meanwhile, unable to find a team willing to trade for his contract, the team has bought out Marcus Camby and signed veteran point guard D.J. Augustin. Augustin, a six-foot guard who played last season for the Indiana Pacers, inked a one-year, $1.26 million contract, according to Yahoo! Sports. Augustin, the No. 9 pick of the 2008 draft made the NBA’s all-rookie second team in 2008-09 when he finished ninth in the league in three-point shooting percentage (43.9%) and averaged 14.4 points and 6.1 assists for the Bobcats two years later. However, Augustin’s game fell off a cliff in his first season with the Pacers. He shot just 35% from the field, and averaged just 4.7 point and 2.2 assists in 16.1 minutes per game for the Eastern Conference finalists.
