Jabari Parker could call on some nearby friends if the Bucks take the Duke forward with the second overall pick in the NBA draft.

He's from nearby Chicago. High school teammate Steve Taylor Jr. plays his college ball in Milwaukee at Marquette.

The school just so happens to have former Blue Devils assistant Steve Wojciechowski as its head coach now.

Bucks general manager John Hammond, of course, isn't letting on exactly on what he's going to do.

But new team co-owner Marc Lasry has said it's essentially down to Parker or Kansas star Andrew Wiggins.

Wojciechowski thinks the 6-foot-8 Parker would be a good fit in Milwaukee.

He says Parker's skill set will make him a scorer in the NBA for a long time.
