Chicago Bulls: Pros and cons of Jabari Parker signing

Jabari Parker

Their roster could use help at small forward too, considering the lineup most often used by Chicago featured Denzel Valentine at small forward.

"Jabari is a 23-year-old player who is a natural fit with our young core, and is a proven scorer at the National Basketball Association level", general manager Gar Forman said in a statement.

It seems as though Jabari Parker's time with the Milwaukee Bucks will be coming to an end this offseason just four years after they drafted him.

A 2-year deal worth $40 million is a bit hefty, but for a player with the potential that Parker has shown, it might not be so bad. The Bulls are banking on revitalizing Parker's career, restoring him to top condition and fulfilling his promise as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft. His best season came in 2016-17 when he averaged 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds in 51 games. Parker had his best season in 2016-17 - averaging 20 points, six rebounds and almost three assists in 50 games before suffering another knee injury.

A moratorium on commercial whaling was passed in 1982 by the International Whaling Commission , taking effect from 1985 onwards. Two species of blue whale are found in Australian waters, according to Macquarie University researcher Vanessa Pirotta.

The Milwaukee Bucks weren't going to match an offer sheet to Parker, so they rescinded their qualifying offer to allow him to sign a shorter deal. "We appreciate everything Jabari has brought to our team and our community over the last four years and we wish him well".

Jabari Parker is heading back home.

Bartelstein praised the Bucks for "working side-by-side with us". He only played in 31 games for the Bucks last season. He's an athletic big who can step out and hit the three. The plan could work out, if Parker stays healthy and would certainly be a welcome change in the Bulls' fortunes, which have been up, down, hit-and-miss (but mostly miss) since another prospect's career was all but ended by an ACL injury.

Chicago also released guard Julyan Stone and forward Paul Zipser on Saturday.
