What isn’t as clear: What does Wiggins want going forward? He left at least one hint at the ACC that he wouldn’t mind returning one day as a Raptor. He said it privately, not publicly. But he said it. One side of the story that hasn’t been well-explained: His parents, Mitchell and Marita, have moved from their Vaughan residence to Minnesota. It’s not uncommon for parents of teenage phenoms to want to remain in close proximity to their children. The parents’ move doesn’t indicate that Wiggins will play long-term with the Timberwolves. This is only Wiggins’ rookie year in the NBA. This situation — and a possible return home in the future — will continue to be discussed, officially and unofficially, over the next several years.

The specifics are still to be determined, but general manager Steve Nash, head coach Jay Triano and company are hoping to use the tournament to prepare for the FIBA Americas, which is being used as the qualification competition for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. That tournament starts in late August. At the top of Canada Basketball’s wish list, obviously, is Andrew Wiggins, soon to be the NBA’s Rookie of the Year. Care to commit, Andrew? “It’s a long time away,” Wiggins said before his lone appearance in his quasi-hometown on Wednesday morning. His Timberwolves play the Raptors in the evening. “I’m going to deal with all that once the season is over.” National Post

Brian Windhorst of ESPN on SiriusXM NBA Radio: I think he’d still be there. LeBron definitely wanted to play with Kevin Love, but remember, Wiggins was not mentioned in the LeBron letter. And on July 7th, the Cavs felt like, if they signed LeBron, they would just keep Wiggins, that they wouldn’t trade him for Love. If Love really wanted to play in Cleveland, he could’ve come there as a free agent next summer. By July 10th or 11th, once LeBron had gotten there, all of a sudden, Wiggins was in the deal. So, you can draw your own map from there. People can deny it from now until those guys retire, but I know exactly what happened. I saw the roadmap. If Wiggins had signed with LeBron’s agency, then Wiggins would have been in the letter. If Wiggins would have been having a relationship with LeBron in the weeks leading up to the draft, then it would have been a no-brainer. NBCSports.com
