No Announcement Expected from Jabari Parker Wednesday
Jabari Parker will not announce his future plans on Wednesday, Duke basketball associate director of sports information Matt Plizga confirmed to SNY.tv Tuesday night.
The Chicago Tribune reported the development earlier in the day.
Plizga said reporters in Oklahoma City “misconstrued [Parker’s] comments” Monday when he said he would meet this week with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and then decide whether or not to enter the NBA Draft.
