Who are Andrew Wiggins' siblings?

Andrew has five siblings. He has three sisters: Stephanie, Angelica, and Taya; and two brothers: Nick and Mitchell Jr. His family is from Toronto, Canada. Their father is Mitchell Wiggins, who played in the NBA for six seasons. Their mother is an all-American sprinter who won two silver medals at the 1984 Olympics, so it's fair to say that athleticism runs in the family.

Of Andrew's siblings, the most prominent is Nick, who also plays basketball. Nick played college ball for three schools, including Wichita State and Wabash Valley College. Nick is older than Andrew and was born in 1991. He declared for the NBA draft in 2014, but he went undrafted and eventually went to Germany to play professional basketball there. He returned after just 11 games and has since spent most of his time playing in the NBA's development league, which is known as the G League.

More recently, Nick has bounced around some other international leagues, including in Thailand, where his team won the championship, and Canada.

Andrew's other brother, Mitchell Jr., also played basketball in college, although he didn't translate that career over into the NBA.

It's fair to say, then, that Andrew showed the most promise of the bunch, and has had a longer career in the league than even his father.

Andrew was selected first overall in 2014.

Andrew was the first overall pick in the 2014 draft, which was the same draft in which his brother went undrafted. He was still young at the time, and started his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves. In 2020, though, he joined Golden State and served a crucial role as that team made its run for the title in 2022.

Although Andrew's career hasn't been uniformly excellent in the years since the championship, he maintains his spot on the roster and even made in All-Star team.

While it's unclear how much longer he'll be in the league, Andew's siblings can certainly be proud of everything that he has already accomplished in his NBA career.

He may not be Steph Curry or Klay Thompson, but Andrew was a valuable piece of the team that ultimately led them to their most recent championship. While it's unclear whether the Warriors will be back in the Finals anytime soon, their dynastic run is still one of the more impressive in the history of the sport.
