Jabari Parker Denies Reports That He Tanked Cavs Workout: "I Have Too Much Pride"

On Monday, a very nasty rumor surfaced that Jabari Parker had such a mediocre workout with the Cavaliers that some wondered if he had intentionally tanked the workout because of a preference for the Milwaukee Bucks, who are picking behind the Cavaliers at No. 2. While we know that Parker believes he will be the second pick, he totally denies the rumors about his workout with Cleveland.

The bigger surprise here would be if the tanking rumors were true. That is certainly not a reputation any player wants to earn before stepping foot on an NBA court for the first time.
