With the 3rd pick in the 2014 NBA Draft the Philadelphia 76ers, represented by KellyMelvina, select:

3) Jabari Parker


The Philadelphia 76ers need offense desperately. While tanking to land this pick, the 76ers ranked dead last in offensive rating at 96.8, three points lower than the second worst team in Orlando at 99.3. Jabari Parker immediately steps in and fills the hole at small forward and upgrades the teams ability to score points on offense.

During his lone season at Duke, Parker averaged 19.1 points on 47 percent shooting (35 percent from three), 8.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game.

In college, Parker showed why he's been touted as the most NBA-ready player in the draft. AT 6'9, the versatile forward was able to get it down everywhere whether it be in transition, in the post, in the high-post, creating in isolation, etc. He's the complete package, often being compared to a young Carmelo Anthony on that side of the ball.

There are grips about his passing ability and how his defense will translate in the NBA, but with the need to grow the 76ers offense, Parker is the perfect pick here.

Don't forget: the 76ers' next pick at #10 is on the trading block! Hit up Trisity on Twitter or email to wheel and deal.
