Jabari Parker, Bulls working on deal

14 July 2018

However, Parker is a restricted free agent as of the moment, meaning any offer the Bulls put on his table, the Bucks have the option to match it in order to retain the swingman.

The Bucks selected Parker out of Duke with the second-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Parker's inability to play the 3 limits the number of teams with a positional need for him.

Jabari Parker has interest in signing with the Chicago Bulls. He had his best season in 2016-17 - averaging 20 points, six rebounds and almost three assists in 50 games before suffering another knee injury. Parker has shown the promise to be an elite scorer in the league. The 2012 Gatorade National Player of the Year is actually from Chicago, as HoopsHype's Alex Kennedy noted when free agency began.

Parker is now a restricted free agent and the Bucks have extended him the one-year qualifying offer of $4.3 million.

Parker has averaged 17.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals per 36 minutes during his career.

Parker, a Chicago native, isn't expected to have an offer sheet matched by the Milwaukee Bucks. Don't be surprised if they try to bring Parker home.
