Parker is a little bigger and from the scouting reports does a bit of everything. Wiggins is apparently much more explosive athletically. Both have plenty of size to play the SF in college, while Wiggins will likely move to SG in the NBA.
Side note: for anyone still debating the reclassification issue and whether Murphy should be considered a freshman next year, take a look at the ages of the US team. Murphy is two years younger than Mitch McGary, 4 months younger than Kaleb Tarczewski, and only 3 months older than Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker and 5 months older than Shabazz Muhammad. So he's very similar in age to those guys, but with a year's worth of collegiate experience under his belt.
The biggest difference between the two is that Duke has a realistic chance to sign Parker. FSU and Kentucky have distanced themselves from the pack on Wiggins. Not sure Duke is even going to try on him. But Duke is in as good a shape as anyone for Jabari Parker.
I saw Parker play live back in January and think I caught him on a bad day. He was obviously a very good player, just not particularly explosive or assertive. But Simeon was also way outclassed by Findlay on that particular day. Suffice it to say I'd love to have Parker at Duke.
Anyway, carry on.
In case you didn't know, I'm a total moron. (You know now, if you didn't before!) I was thinking of Andrew and Aaron Harrison.
Uh, don't mind me. I'll go back to the NBA threads for a while.
