Jabari Parker Selected Second Overall by Milwaukee Bucks

Ryan Glasspiegel

In what was a relatively easy pick for the Bucks after Joel Embiid suffered a foot injury, Milwaukee has selected Jabari Parker second overall in the draft. With Parker — who was widely considered the most NBA-ready player right now in this year’s draft — and Greek freak Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have a pretty solid young nucleus to build around.

Parker, who reportedly wanted to play in Milwaukee in part because it was closer to Chicago where he grew up, got his way in this one.
