'He won't be with us': Warriors block Wiggins from Canada's Olympic basketball camp

Andrew Wiggins will not join the Canadian men's basketball team at training camp, a decision that was out of his hands.

Canada general manager Rowan Barrett confirmed Wiggins would not be in camp, saying he was being held out from competing by his NBA team, the Golden State Warriors. Wiggins was among 20 players who received an invite to camp to determine the team headed to the Paris Olympics.

"For us, Andrew was fine," Barrett said. "We were talking to him consistently, he's been training for weeks and weeks getting ready for this. And then I got a call from Golden State a day or two before camp saying that they're holding him out.

"So from what I see, this is not an Andrew decision, this is from the team. And so, he won't be with us."

The Athletic's Anthony Slater reported that it was a mutual decision between the franchise and Wiggins not to participate in Canada's camp.

The 10-year NBA veteran and one-time all-star and champion last played for Canada at its Olympic qualifying tournament in 2021. Wiggins expressed an interest in joining Canada for the Olympics, however.

"I'm disappointed for him," Barrett said. "He's gone through a lot the last couple of years and then, obviously, his mother was an Olympian and this is something he's looking forward to and working toward and really on the uphill climb it seemed like in everything.

"I had a good conversation with him, he's definitely trying to push the guys down the track almost, so to speak, hoping for the best for the guys."
