Mitchell Andrew Wiggins No. 1 in the NBA Draft after taking a long hard look at Jabari Parker (who was subsequently snatched up by the Milwaukee Bucks). Yesterday, lost in all the hoopla surrounding LeBron James’ big announcement, the two top picks squared off in NBA Summer League action.
Round one of Wiggins vs. Parker went narrowly to the high-flying Canadian. Wiggins netted a game-high 18 points in leading the Cavaliers to a 70-68 victory. Parker was just one off the pace with 17 points, which included some highlight-worthy finger rolls at the rim.
