Dad Denies Parker Gained Weight, Tanked

Reports that Jabari Parker has gained weight and tanked his workout with the Cavaliers on Friday are not true, according to his father.

Sonny Parker called the persistent reports of Jabari’s weight gain “made up” and scoffed at an ESPN report that claimed Jabari purposely didn’t put his best foot forward for the Cavaliers because he hopes to play for the Bucks instead.

“He would never do that,” Sonny Parker, an NBA first-round draft pick himself in 1976, said. “His character is different. He plays the same way regardless. He is very thankful to be in this situation.”
