Playing for Dallas in the Summer League is Parks’ next step in chasing his dream to play in the NBA after he went undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Parks, a 6-foot-4 swingman and two-time UAAP MVP, bided his time in the PBA D-League where he became an MVP as well. He also played for the Philippine national team before making his way to the US and working out with various NBA teams including the Utah Jazz, the Brooklyn Nets, and the Boston Celtics. – Rappler.com
