Andrew Wiggins Commits To Canada For FIBA World Cup 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jun 18, 2019 6:31 am

Andrew Wiggins will play for Team Canada at this summer's FIBA Basketball World Cup, according to Arash Madani of Sportsnet.


“I think the Raptors are clearly Canada’s team...but we actually do have a Canada basketball team that represents our country and I’m expecting now the support that I’ve seen and the awareness that I’ve seen in this game," Canadian men's basketball GM Rowan Barrett told Madani after revealing the news about Wiggins.


Canada are in Group H with Australia, Lithuania and Senegal. 


The announcement comes on the heels of Nick Nurse's commitment to coaching the team this summer.

That's a strong group to be in. If they want to win they probably should try without Wiggins.

As long as he comes off the bench and doesn't expect 20-25 shots a game.

Do we even want this lazy, good for nothing, child on our team?
