Bucks appear to cross Embiid off list for 2nd pick in NBA draft, focus on Parker, Wiggins

The Bucks appear to be narrowing their focus on Duke's Jabari Parker or Kansas' Andrew Wiggins with the second selection in this week's NBA draft.

New team co-owner Marc Lasry says Milwaukee is looking for someone who can help "from Day One."

That would seem to preclude 7-foot center prospect Joel Embiid. Wiggins' teammate with the Jayhawks had foot surgery last week.

Lasry spoke at a Monday meeting of Milwaukee journalists and business leaders. He says it would be hard to take Embiid, while co-owner Wesley Edens was among those who watched Wiggins work out recently.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have the No. 1 pick in the draft. If they take Wiggins or Parker, Lasry says he thinks the Bucks will take the other prospect.
