As expected, Jabari Parker has officially declared for the 2014 NBA Draft. Parker may very well be the best player in this year's draft class. He can score in various ways, play multiple positions and has an NBA-ready body. Any team would be lucky to have him. Here are the 5 teams that need Parker the most next season.

The Celtics only want rebuilding to be a one-season affair, so landing the best player in the draft will only help the Celtics get back on track and back to contention. Rajon Rondo could help Parker's development while brad Stevens can make him more of a team-oriented player.

The Magic have a solid nucleus of young players including Tobias Harris, Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic. Out of all the lottery teams, they are the closest to contention, and having a scorer like Jabari Parker would solidify their chances.

3. Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks absolutely need a player like Jabari Parker. The Bucks have a promising frontcourt but no No. 1 option. Since Milwaukee has trouble attracting free agents, selecting a franchise player would help put the team back on the map.

2. Utah Jazz

The Jazz are similar to the Magic in that they have a solid corps of young players with Derrick Favors, Trey Burke and Gordan Hayward. Utah's fans have been loyal and deserve to have a chance to be in the playoffs again. Parker would be a terrific addition and would make the Jazz one of the best up-and-coming teams in the league.

The 76ers tanked hard this season, and if they were to miss out on the best player in the draft, it would be an utter embarrassment. Philadelphia needs a wing player, and Parker would be a perfect fit.
