Andrew Wiggins is moving on up.

In Golden State's matchup with the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, the Warriors forward scored the 10,000th point of his NBA career.

Wiggins is now one of only two Canadians in NBA history to reach 10,000 career points, the other being Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash, who finished his career with 17,387 points.

The No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Wiggins spent the first five-and-a-half seasons of his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Warriors acquired him from the Timberwolves at last season's trade deadline for a package built around one-time All-Star D'Angelo Russell.

Now in his first full season with the Warriors, Wiggins entered Wednesday's game with averages of 18.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game on a career-best 47.7 percent shooting from the field and 38.8 percent from 3-point range. He scored a season-high 40 points in a win over the Memphis Grizzlies on March 19.
