Let me put this way. If (Jabari) Parker finishes the loss to Mercer, and he’s bad, and they still lose, he goes down with something pretty close to his 14-7-3 line. Let’s give him two points, and a board, say, to be generous. So 16-8-3. Having a bad game and getting torched on the other end in a loss is actually better for his stock than not having been a part of the final few minutes regardless. At least then he isn’t viewed as a player so bad defensively “You can’t live with him.”

The reaction was mixed, obviously. Some reporters chimed in with scouts and GMs going wild on Parker. One scout I spoke with downplayed it. “Nothing new with (Parker) on the defensive end. I don’t know why it would affect his stock that much.”
