Player Bio

Andrew Christian Wiggins was born in Toronto in 1995. His father, Mitchell, played collegiate basketball at Florida State before featuring at the NBA level with the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers. Wiggins' mother, Marita, was a track star at Florida State who represented Canada in the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games. Both of Wiggins' brothers, Nick and Mitchell Jr., played collegiate basketball -- at Wichita State and Southeastern University, respectively. Wiggins started his high school career at Vaughan Secondary School in Ontario before transferring to Huntington Prep in West Virginia for his final two years. In his first year at Huntington Prep, Wiggins averaged 24.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.7 blocked shots, leading his team to a 29-2 season and capturing the 2012 Gatorade West Virginia Boys Basketball Player of the Year Award. The following season, he averaged 23.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 2.5 assists per game as the Highlanders finished the year with a 30-3 record. Wiggins then spent a year at the University of Kansas. The 2014 No. 1 pick is active in his pursuit of community service. He made headlines for donating $22 to charity for every point he scored during the 2018-19 NBA season. Wiggins and his family also run the Andrew Wiggins Foundation, which supports youth athletic organizations. You can follow Wiggins on Twitter and Instagram @22wiggins. Wiggins racked up awards in his lone college season. He was named to the 2013-14 All-Big 12 first team and the 2014 All-Big 12 Tournament first team as well as winning 2013-14 Big 12 Rookie of the Year. He finished fourth in the Big 12 in points with 597, setting a Kansas freshman record in the process. The star freshman led the Jayhawks in points (17.1), field goals (5.4) and steals (1.2) per game, and he ranked third on the squad with 5.9 rebounds per game. He helped lead Kansas to the 2013-14 regular season Big 12 title and into the second round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Wiggins entered the 2014 NBA Draft after one year at Kansas. He was selected first overall in the draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers, then traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves before the start of the 2014-15 NBA season.
