Speaking to reporters after Wednesday's shootaround, the Minnesota Timberwolves forward said he'll play for Team Canada in August. The FIBA Americas Olympic qualifying tournament is Aug. 25 to Sept. 6 in Mexico.
While Wiggins spoke specifically about putting the Canadian jersey on in August, he said nothing about July. The Toronto Pan Am Games are July 10 to July 26.
After a stellar opening campaign, Wiggins is the odds-on favourite to win NBA rookie of the year.
His Minnesota Timberwolves teammate, Anthony Bennett, has already said he'll suit up for Canada at the Pan Ams.
A spokesperson for Canada Basketball said no offical announcement on the Pan Am team will be made until June 26.
