the gun charges were obviously a "set up" from his ex. I am not saying the he is a guy that you can count on no matter what, I am saying that if you get him to buy in, he is a bulldog at the point. The skills are there, its getting him to want to do it. Yeah, that is a pain in the ass and he shouldn't need a coach to be his babysitter but, its not that he doesn't have skills.
The more I see Parker, the more I think he is going to be mediocre to a bust for many of the same reasons you mentioned with Felton. How can a 18/19 year old kid not keep his weight down playing basketball and knowing that he is going to the draft? And he tanks a tryout just cause he doesn't want to play there? I'd avoid this kid. The thing about this draft is now that Embiid has the issues and Wiggins is probably number 1, I would trade down if I have the 2-5 picks because I think you are going to see more successful players low in the draft. There is a lot of talent that you can pick up 15-25 and if you can also get a proven NBA player along with one of those picks, I'd trade if I was 2,3,4 etc.
