Bucks GM: 3 top freshmen potential All-Stars
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond says Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid have a chance to be All-Stars who can help teams build a champion.

The Bucks got the No. 2 draft pick Tuesday behind the Cleveland Cavaliers, who received the first selection for the second straight year and third time in the last four. The Bucks had a 25 percent chance of winning the lottery after a league-worst 15-67 record.

This year’s draft is rich in talent, led by freshmen Parker of Duke and Wiggins and Embiid of Kansas.

Hammond said Wednesday the Bucks will base their pick more on the best player available than filling a particular position on the team.

    if wiggins is not there at #2. cleanthony early (wichita st) would be my choice. long, athletic, has 3 pt range, and 85% from the stripe. embid, back problems at 20 yrs old? no thanks. and jabari parker just looks big and slow. i honestly dont see what all the hype is about. hes good, but not #2 good. in fact, id take doug mcdermott over embid or parker.

    Parker is a bit slow, but he is tough in th paint. He would be good against an offense like miami forcing outside shots,or any other slower offenses with big players down low. He is the kind of player that is a rare piece to a title contender but not a top 5 player the bucks desperatly need for a playoff push to the second round or farther. Wiggins is the best player in the draft. And bucks gotta select him if hes still on the board. Lets not forget bucks need to draft a player that doesnt care its a small market
