NBA Draft Rumors: Jabari Parker says decision will come next week (Video)


Duke freshman star Jabari Parker has been the hot topic of discussion with the college basketball season over and all eyes pointed toward the June NBA Draft. But we will know very soon, for sure, whether or not he will be headed to the NBA as he has set a timetable of either next Tuesday or Wednesday to make a decision as he told ESPN’s SportsNation on Friday.

While there are some prospects from that college ranks that we already know are coming out, or at the very least have a good idea that they will eventually do so, Parker has been the biggest mystery.

After Duke’s stunning loss to Mercer in the NCAA Tournament, listening to Parker after the game with his post game comments, it seemed as if he might want to return when he called his college career, “incomplete.”

Then this past week, it was reported that he had secured sophomore housing with Duke University, a report which you can see in the video above he denies.

But we will know by next week what the star will ultimately do.
