“‘This is about as close of a top three as I’ve seen in a long, long time,’ said one veteran general manager. ‘It really does depend on who gets the top pick and whether they are willing to take a risk or not.’
‘I think one GM would go with Parker, another would go with Embiid and another with Wiggins,’ added another. ‘No one knows who will go first right now.’
“Parker is the low-risk selection, a 6-foot-8 forward who can score in just about every way on the court. Many compare him to Carmelo Anthony, and many feel he’s a sure thing at the next level because of his skill set, basketball IQ and demeanor.”
—Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com on 17 of 30 NBA executives saying they would take Jabari Parker with the top overall pick.
It truly is a toss up though as most general manager admit Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid have more upside while Jabari Parker is the most complete prospect.
