Andrew Wiggins’ host family at Huntington Prep is the same family that took care of Gorgui Dieng when he played at Prep. Small world, right? Anyway, Gorgui is using his host mother, Lesley Thomas, to try to push Wiggins away from Kentucky. Thomas told the Courier-Journal’s Adam Himmelsbach that Gorgui gives her messages to relay to Wiggins. She said, “[Gorgui] always says ‘Tell him no, Mom. No way. Don’t go to Kentucky”
Thomas also told Himmelsbach, “[Wiggins] doesn’t like the spotlight. That’s the reason I don’t know if he’ll go to Kentucky.”
Watch it, Gorgui. We’re trying to like you.
