Canadian basketball star Andrew Wiggins told a reporter on Tuesday night that he wants to play for the Toronto Raptors.

After being presented with the award for being the U.S. prep athlete of the year, the Vaughan, Ont., native was asked, “if the NBA draft was tomorrow, which team would you say is the best fit for you?”

“I would like to say the Raptors because I want to play for them,” was his response.

Wiggins, who will be a freshman at the University of Kansas next fall, is the favourite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA entry draft.
