Jabari Parker pleased to join Milwaukee Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks first-round Draft pick Jabari Parker believes that there is "no better place to be" in the NBA.

Jabari Parker has said that there is "no better place to be" after he was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Draft.

The team used the second overall pick to acquire the former Duke forward earlier this week.

The 19-year-old said at his first press conference at the team: "No better place to be. I feel welcome. I'm really honest. I don't look forward to leaving anytime soon. I keep that in my heart. If I just look at it as a short-term deal, things won't work out.

"The most important thing was the organisation was all-in. I just had to roll with somebody who was very honest with me and was going to be frank. I just appreciate somebody taking me.

"I got real emotional outside the media. Because I put in a lot hard work to be in this situation. It wasn't given to me. I didn't have lot of hype. Everything was earned. I want to keep that mentality, as coming in as an underdog. I'm coming to an underdog program."

The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Andrew Wiggins first overall.
