Default Jabari Parkerís weight, poor workout leave top pick in question

Parker was at the top of the Cavsí draft board most of the college season, but Embiid was always the wild card, particularly if he checked out healthy. But he didnít, and now Parker might not be interested in playing in Cleveland.

There were rumblings a couple of weeks ago that one of the top players in this draft was refusing to work out for the Cavs. That could never be confirmed, but then Parker showed up Friday heavier than expected and didnít perform well in the workout, one source with knowledge of the workout confirmed.

ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford reported that Parker weighed in at 255 pounds during his workout ó about 15 to 20 pounds heavier than his listed playing weight at Duke. Parkerís weight issues, coupled with the uncertainty over where heíll play could make the Cavs think twice about selecting him.
