07:26 AM ET 10.16 | From a brand perspective, an Andrew Wiggins doesn't come along often, and he'll be rewarded handsomely. Three sources told Bleacher Report that Adidas has pegged Wiggins as their prime target. ... "(Adidas) is easily the front-runner, 100 percent," said Rich Lopez, the publisher of the popular sneaker website KixandtheCity.com. "From what I'm hearing, (Adidas) is really high on him," an industry source said. "I've heard a range for sure, from like $140 to $180 million for like 10 years. That's a big deal for a kid coming out of school because most rookie deals are probably like four years." ... "I'm hearing from people at Kansas that he's got a $180 million offer supposedly coming from Adidas," a source close to Wiggins' inner circle said. "But I also heard that Nike is going to match anything."

Which begs the question: If Wiggins is that good, why didn't he just go the King James route and go directly to the NBA?

Not allowed anymore....Bog Brother forced a one-and-done rule on us (which makes everyone a loser, IMHO).

It'd be pretty funny if Wiggins winds up being a bad NBA player.
