Joel Embiid's foot injury means Parker slides up to No. 2. Wiggins may have a higher ceiling than Parker, but Parker may be more equipped to have an immediate effect in the NBA. For most of his high school career, Parker was the No. 1 ranked player in the Class of 2013 until Wiggins snatched that title from him. To start his freshman season at Duke, Parker played with a chip on his shoulder, scoring 21 points or more in his first seven games as a Blue Devil. The 6-foot-8 forward finished the season as a consensus All-American after averaging 19.1 points and 8.7 rebounds a game. At his size, Parker might not be able to dominate at the power forward position in the NBA as much as he did at Duke. But the Bucks need a lot of help, and getting a potential franchise player in Parker is a start.
