Jabari Parker, Bulls working on deal

Sidney Guerrero | 14 July, 2018, 02:34

Parker has spent each of his first four seasons in the National Basketball Association in Milwaukee, but there's a big probability that he will have to put his Bucks uniform in the closet for good with the Bulls seemingly taking an aggressive approach in trying to acquire the former Duke Blue Devils star.

The Chicago Bulls and restricted free agent Jabari Parker are reportedly making progress on a deal, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Though Parker has alternated between power and small forward, the Bulls' initial plan is to start him at small forward, a position of need.

Their roster could use help at small forward too, considering the lineup most often used by Chicago featured Denzel Valentine at small forward. Last season, he averaged 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game after recovering from a torn ACL.

Tropical islands without rats have healthier coral reefs
Fish were found to be about 50 percent more abundant in the waters adjacent to rat-free islands. Bird droppings serve as a natural fertiliser for coral reefs.

Fans in the area flocked to the court and Parker played in some pick-up games with those that showed up. The 2012 Gatorade National Player of the Year is actually from Chicago, as HoopsHype's Alex Kennedy noted when free agency began.

So far in his career, Parker is averaging 15.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 steal per game.

Parker is now a restricted free agent and the Bucks have extended him the one-year qualifying offer of $4.3 million. Don't be surprised if they try to bring Parker home.
