TORONTO - Raptors fans will love this.

Canadian hoops phenom Andrew Wiggins, expected to be selected first overall in the draft next summer, revealed Tuesday that, given his druthers, he'd like to play at home.

After winning the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year Award Tuesday, Wiggins told esnewsreporting.com he wants to win a national championship at Kansas, would love to play Kobe Bryant one-on-one and considers Michael Jordan the greatest ever, before talk turned to his preferred NBA home.

"I would like to say the Raptors, I want to play for them," said Wiggins, who has been spotted many times sporting a Raptors cap.

The team would need quite a bit of lottery luck in order to make Wiggins' wish come true, but there's always free agency down the line.

Wiggins, a Thornhill native, averaged 23.4 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game for Huntington Prep in West Virginia in his final high school season.
