Milwaukee (WQOW) -- The Milwaukee Bucks will pick second in Thursday's NBA Draft, after the Cavaliers.

At the time of the draft lottery, the thought was Cleveland would have its pick of either Joel Embiid (Kansas), Andrew Wiggins (Kansas), or Jabari Parker (Duke), but Embiid has injury issues, so his draft stock is plummeting.

"It's hard to take Embiid," says Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry, "I think he's a phenomenal individual, but with the injury and not knowing how severe and how long it will take him to recover, I think for us today we're going to want somebody who helps us on day one."

Lasry says that whatever happens, the Bucks will get a very good player.

"You know, if it's Parker, that would be great, if it's Wiggins, great, you're not going to be disappointed either way," says Lasry, "I actually think if you are the number one pick, then you've got a big decision to make, you really do. I mean, it's, I think both players bring you different things, so I think for us, I think it's great."
