OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) â€” Jabari Parker says he plans to “set up an appointment” with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski when he returns to Durham, N.C., on Tuesday and he will decide Wednesday whether to declare for the NBA draft or return to college for his sophomore year.
Parker was in Oklahoma City to accept the Wayman Tisdale Award as college basketball’s top freshman. He says his decision will be based on where he can grow the most.
Parker says he’ll talk with Coach K and “lay out my options, but I’m just really glad I get the best of both worlds.”
Parker was the highest-scoring freshman in Duke history (19.1 per game) and is the first freshman to lead the Blue Devils in scoring and rebounding.
