He'll be in the same frontcourt as shotblockers Larry Sanders and John Henson, and will run at forward with the Greek Freak, aka Giannis Antetokounmpo.
He'll be greeted by a fellow Devil: former point guard Bob Bender is a Bucks assistant.
Small trivia point: both Wiggins and Parkers are second-generation NBA talents, and apparently it's the 13th year in a row a son of a former NBA player was was picked. In that streak of course: Mike Dunleavy and Gerald Henderson.
The Parkers don't like to talk about father Sonny's health, but he's on dialysis, which isn't cheap. Being in Milwaukee will put Parker almost in his home town and able to help with medical bills. It's a great situation for the family.
