Parker undecided

Tue., April 15, 2014

Jabari Parker said he plans to meet with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski when he returns to Durham, N.C., today, and will decide Wednesday whether to declare for the NBA draft or return to college for his sophomore year. The All-American was in Oklahoma City with his parents to accept the Wayman Tisdale Award as college basketball’s top freshman. He said his decision will be based on where he can grow the most. “I don’t know where that is right now,” Parker said. “I’ll talk to coach about it and lay out my options, but I’m just really glad I get the best of both worlds.” Parker was the highest-scoring freshman in Duke history (19.1 per game) and is the first freshman to lead the Blue Devils in scoring and rebounding. The draft is June 26. – Associated Press
