Speculation was high all month of who would be the top pick in the N.B.A. draft from Andrew Wiggins to Jabari Parker to Joel Embiid. On Thursday Night, new NBA commissioner Adam Silver conducted his first draft, things came full circle, and it was Wiggins who walked onto the Barclays Center stage sporting a Cleveland Cavaliers hat as the No. 1 overall pick.
Wiggins seemed happy, if a bit scattered after the pick, saying, “It doesn’t even feel real right now.”
Duke’s Jabari Parker went 2nd Overall to the Milwaukee Bucks.
