The Bucks reportedly view Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton as "untouchable."
The Celtics have been making calls around the league trying to deal away their No. 3 overall selection in the upcoming draft, but the Bucks have zero interest in giving up one of their franchise cornerstones in exchange for unproven talent. Giannis Antetokounmpo is also on Milwaukee's list of "untouchable" talent. Jun 22 - 9:27 AM

Jabari Parker said he wants to play for Team USA in the future.

"One of the biggest dreams I have is a gold medal," Parker said. Parker said he can be a serious candidate for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. He'll be playing on the USA Select team this summer with hopes of being able to make an impact down the road. Parker can play both forward positions and played slightly more small forward later in the season than earlier in the year.

Jabari Parker said he will shoot more 3-pointers next season, but it won't be his main focus.

"It wasn’t until here with the Bucks that I stopped shooting 3s," Parker said. "I won’t be shooting a lot of them [3s], but I want to shoot more of them and be able to make them. That’s not going to be my game." As Shaun Livingston proved in Game 1 of the Finals, the mid-range game is still relevant in the NBA and that's one of Parker's strengths. The 21-year-old forward looked awesome after the All-Star break this season with averages of 18.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals, but the promise of a few more 3-pointers should boost his value even more.

Jabari Parker is expected to join the USA Select Team.

It certainly makes sense after Parker enjoyed a full-fledged breakout in the second half of the 2015-16 season with averages of 18.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals on 49.8 percent shooting following the All-Star break. Although he was just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts this past season, Parker should be targeted in the early middle rounds ahead of next year.
May 16 - 10:27 AM

Jabari Parker said that he will work on his 3-point shot this summer even though he loves taking midrange shots.

"Personally I'm not really a big fan of the three-ball," Parker said. "I love the midrange, I think it's more efficient for me, especially for me working back. But who knows? If I'm open I'm going to take it." Parker added that he wants to improve his fundamentals, post play, free-throw shooting and understanding of the team's schemes this summer. He looked fantastic after the All-Star break with averages of 18.9 points, 6.1 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals on 49.8 percent shooting, so he's going to likely cost you a mid-round pick next season.
Apr 17 - 10:39 AM

Jabari Parker scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 37 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

He did go to the locker room after a bad fall, but Parker did return. He attempted two shots from beyond the arc in this game and that's been a trend to close out his sophomore season. One season after tearing his ACL, Parker is about to play 32 minutes per game, including a whopping 37.0 after the break.
Apr 11 - 9:24 PM

Bucks coach Jason Kidd is encouraging Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo to shoot more 3-pointers.

"The game is changing quickly," Kidd said. "The 3-pointer is becoming more important than layups. You've got to look at those guys shooting and they're going to continue to shoot more threes. We're encouraging that and I think you'll see that they're comfortable shooting it." Parker wasn't taking many 3-pointers at the beginning of the season, but his confidence is growing and he's hit 7-of-23 since the All-Star break which is a step in the right direction. He should be a nice mid-round pick next season.
Apr 9 - 10:46 AM

Jabari Parker scored 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting Friday, to go with five boards, one assist and one turnover in 29 minutes.

Parker has showed a lot of promise during his sophomore season, and he’s been a steady mid-round asset since the break with averages of 19.2 points, 6.2 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 turnovers per game on 50.0 percent shooting. He’ll make for a fine mid-round selection in next year’s drafts.
Apr 8 - 10:40 PM

Jabari Parker finished Tuesday's 29-point loss to the Cavaliers with 19 points, four assists, two rebounds and two turnovers.

Parker shot 7-of-19 from the field and 5-of-10 from the line without any 3-pointers, steals or blocks, and he just couldn't get much going vs. the Cavs' defense. He's shooting 78.4 percent from the line this season, so tonight's mark was an aberration, but to take a leap in fantasy leagues next year he'll need to improve from the arc (25.9 percent) and contribute more assists (1.7), steals (1.0) and blocks (0.4).
Apr 5 - 11:04 PM

Jabari Parker had another solid game on Sunday with 24 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 44 minutes of action vs. the Bulls.

Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo have developed a nice chemistry and they'll be a scary sight for opponents for years to come. Parker made 9-of-21 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs tonight, with six offensive rebounds, and his sky-high playing time ensures solid fantasy production in Milwaukee's final five contests.
Apr 3 - 9:50 PM

Jabari Parker scored 26 points on 12-of-14 from the field against the Magic on Friday, adding seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 41 minutes.

His post-up game was on display and he had a couple really nice moves on the low block in this win. The Bucks do continue to play Parker at small forward on occasion and that might continue more next year with Giannis Antetokounmpo shifting to point guard. Once Parker adds a three, he could be very good.
Apr 1 - 11:38 PM

Jabari Parker scored 19 points against the Hawks on Friday with eight rebounds, one assist and four turnovers.

He scored 12 points in the first half and he continues to slide over to the small forward spot these days. Parker played eight minutes at small forward tonight as the team tries to expand his range as an offensive weapon. For now, expect him to be a mid-round player the rest of this season. If he can work on his 3-pointer, Parker would be an appealing target next year.
Mar 26 - 12:02 AM

Jabari Parker secured a career-high four steals vs. Cleveland on Wednesday, adding 12 points, one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

It was a curious performance for Parker, who struggled on the glass and was barely involved offensively after halftime. His fantasy value has been held in check by low assists (1.6), steals (0.9) and blocks (0.4), but he's still a steady mid-round value with a usage rate approaching 25 percent this month.
Mar 23 - 10:11 PM

Jabari Parker scored five points with six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 35 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.

The good news is this was the first game the Bucks got a 3-pointer from Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo this season. Parker has slowed down a little bit and has failed to score 20 points in any of his last four -- he had seven 20-plus scoring games to start his post-break run. Parker is likely more of a top 75-100 player going forward.
Mar 21 - 11:45 PM

Jabari Parker bounced back from Friday's quiet game, finishing a loss to the Jazz with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

Parker had 16 consecutive games in double-figures prior to Friday's dud vs. the Grizzlies, and it didn't take him long to bounce back. He's getting plenty of touches with a usage rate of 23.6 percent in March, and continues to provide mid-round value grounded in scoring (18.2 ppg), steals (1.4) and percentages (47.1 FGs, 80.6 FTs).
