The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
Wiggins was the consensus No. 1 pick back in the fall, but after a relatively disappointing season in Kansas his stock fell a bit.
Joel Embiid, Wiggins’ teammate at Kansas, was expected to be the top pick until he suffered a broken foot a week ago.
Wiggins is a good fit here. The Cavaliers need defence, and Wiggins — while raw on the offensive end — should be a good wing defender from Day One. Kyrie Irving should be able to get him into good spots on offence as well.
The Cavaliers have a questionable draft history, but the initial impression is that this is a solid pick.
