Strengths » May be the best athlete in the draft. Has a chance to be special as a defender and all-around scorer. Has emerged as the favorite in the past week.

History » Was considered one of the best high school players in the last decade. Has been compared to LeBron James, but reminds many of Tracy McGrady.

2. Milwaukee Bucks

Jabari Parker, 6-9, 240, small forward, Duke

Strengths » Is a supreme scorer in the mold of Paul Pierce and Carmelo Anthony. Has a refined offensive game that should allow him to instantly get buckets in the NBA.

History » Is the son of former NBA player Sonny Parker. Hails from Chicago, where he led famed Simeon High to multiple Illinois state titles.

3. Philadelphia 76ers

Noah Vonleh, 6-9, 247, power forward, Indiana

Strengths » Has huge upside and wingspan. Has a little Chris Bosh in him with his ability to stretch the floor. Could impact Philly right away.

History » Was one of the best freshmen in the Big Ten in his one year of college. Like the first two picks, was a McDonald’s All-American.

4. Orlando Magic

Dante Exum, 6-6, 196, point guard, Australia

Strengths » Is long and athletic and has big potential at the point guard position. Intrigued many scouts last season with his play in the Nike Hoop Summit.

History » Is the son of Cecil Exum, who played at North Carolina. Had he played collegiately, would’ve likely landed at Indiana.

5. Utah Jazz
