The 2014 NBA Draft takes places tomorrow and the No. 1 overall pick is anyone's guess. While the sports world is eager to find out where players will land on the board, the sneaker community is focused on the footwear companies that these future stars will sign to.
According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, Jordan Brand is currently in the lead to sign Jabari Parker, the former Duke forward and projected top three pick.
While nothing at the moment is official, if this holds up and Parker ends up signing with the Jumpman, it would bolster the brand's already-loaded lineup that features the likes of NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and Russell Westbrook.
Another projected top pick in the draft, Danté Exum, already signed with adidas back in April.

Jabari Parker just shared this image of a Jordan Brand tie bar on Twitter with the hashtag "#family," which leads to further speculation that he will be signing to Jordan Brand. Expect to see Parker wearing this tie bar when his name gets called during today's NBA Draft.
