Jabari Parker, Chicago Bulls making progress on offer sheet

Jabari Parker, Chicago Bulls making progress on offer sheet”

Chicago native Jabari Parker just might be headed to the hometown team for the 2018-19 season, as the Bulls are reportedly on the verge of signing the erstwhile Milwaukee Bucks forward to a contract. The former Simeon star tore the ACL in his left knee twice since entering the league.

Milwaukee isn't expected to match this offer sheet, and there have been reports that they could pull his qualifying offer to allow him to become an unrestricted free agent, but this is yet to happen.

Parker, 23, was a restricted free-agent before the Bucks rescinded their rights to his contract, making him an unrestricted free-agent. Parker has even added a decent three-point shot, shooting 37% from behind the arc. "We appreciate everything Jabari has brought to our team and our community over the last four years, and we wish him well".

The forward was selected with the second overall pick by the Bucks in the 2014 NBA Draft, but has largely been ineffective for the team due to injuries. He played 31 games previous year, averaging 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds.

He returned from his second ACL rehab in February of this past season and averaged 12.6 points in 31 games. If healthy, Parker can help accelerate the Bulls' return to playoff contention in the east.

The bulls plan to build a young team with Parker at its centre, along with big man Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine. Of course, knee injuries derailed his run in Chicago. Parker put out a post on Instagram yesterday afternoon of him in his basketball shoes with the address of a local park in Milwaukee. The Bulls had made two earlier moves, trading Jerian Grant and Julyan Stone in order to free up even more cap space.
