 ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (AP) - The Milwaukee Bucks have taken forward Jabari Parker with the second overall pick in the NBA draft, a pivotal selection for a team in transition.
The one-and-done Duke star immediately becomes a face for an organization with new ownership seeking to invigorate its fan base following a franchise-worst 67-loss season.
The 6-foot-8 Parker has been lauded for his maturity and offensive skills. He would join 19-year-old forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (YAHN'-ihs ahn-teh-toh-KUHN'-poh) and Brandon Knight as promising team cornerstones.
General John Hammond likes Parker for his ability to fit into multiple positions in the frontcourt. Parker's defense, though, is considered a work in progress.
Parker figures to have an easy transition in Milwaukee. He's from nearby Chicago, and former Blue Devils assistant Steve Wojciechowski is now head coach at Marquette.
