CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

With the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft, the Cavs selected Andrew Wiggins from Kansas. 

Wiggins will hopefully fill the hole at small forward left four years ago when LeBron James defected to Miami.

The 6-8 forward is the third Canadian to be drafted by the Cavs, joining Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett. 

If he lives up to his potential, Wiggins will be a superstar in the league. He scored 17 points a game on average in his one year at Kansas. He is also just as good on the defensive end. 

Once he improves his outside shooting, and learns to go to his left, look out!
