Early life Wiggins was born in Toronto[4][5][6] and raised in the nearby Thornhill neighbourhood of Vaughan, Ontario.[1][5][7][8][9] He is the son of former NBA player Mitchell Wiggins, an American, and former Olympic track and field sprinter Marita Payne-Wiggins, a Canadian who is originally from Barbados. His parents met as student athletes at Florida State University.[10] He attended elementary school at Glen Shields Public School in Vaughan.[11] Wiggins began playing organized basketball when he was nine, joining an Under-10 team in Toronto.[12] At the time, he was 5 ft 7 in (1.70 m). He dunked a basketball for the first time when he was 13, and a year later, he grew to 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m) and shattered a glass backboard after dunking on a rim at the Dufferin Clark Community Centre in Vaughan.[12] High school career
