The media is meeting with Jabari Parker today and he’s got a feeling he knows where he’ll be playing basketball for the foreseeable future.

The trendiest place for Parker has always been Milwaukee, though in the days since Joel Embiid’s foot was diagnosed with a stress fracture, many slotted Parker into the number one spot. But a bad workout by Parker and a great workout from Andrew Wiggins apparently has Cavs owner Dan Gilbert jonesing for Wiggins in Cleveland, which would leave Parker available for the team that’s coveted him the most.
Jabari Parker says he’s not opposed to going to Cavs, but said no commitment was made.Said Bucks told him they’d take him if he’s there at 2

Chad Ford reported earlier this week that a source told him there were suspicions that Parker “tanked” his Cleveland workout due to his desire to play in Milwaukee, though that report was refuted by Parker’s father shortly after.
Regardless, it’s seemed for a while that the Bucks have had eyes for Parker and that Parker has had eyes for the Bucks.
