In his Monday afternoon chat on ESPN.com, NBA guru Chad Ford said the Milwaukee Bucks have eyes on Julius Randle in next summer’s draft, ahead of Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker. The Bucks currently have the worst record in the league.
Here’s the quote:
Matt (Wisconsin): Bucks fan here. If the Bucks had the #1 pick, who do you think the would take Parker or Wiggins? I personally want Parker
Chad Ford: I actually think they might be leaning, right now, toward Julius Randle. Given the personnel they have on the floor, having a guy that can be a double-double machine and draw a double team in the paint might be their biggest need. But Parker, Wiggins and Embiid will all get long looks too.
Randle to Milwaukee, though nothing but very, very, very early talk right now, would pair the Kentucky forward with former Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight.
It’s not the ideal pro team to love but we’d embrace it.
