Jabari Parker wins straw poll for top pick

“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 on 17 of 30 NBA executives he spoke to picking Jabari Parker as their top prospect

Certainly Parker is the most complete and ready prospect in this NBA Draft. He seemed to prove that time and time again in his year at Duke. But Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid provide a lot of upside and potential for general managers to consider.

As Goodman reports, many NBA executives see this top three as close as any top three in recent memory.
