One of the college prospects several NBA front offices are waiting to hear from is Duke forward Jabari Parker. As the college season wore on, many believed Parker was a lock to enter the draft, but with the Blue Devils’ NCAA tournament run coming to an abrupt end at the hands of Mercer University, rumors began to swirl that Parker would instead opt to return for his sophomore season.

One of the questions posed to Parker was whether he would prefer to play for Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski or Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni.
