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.
