Jabari Parker, Chicago Bulls progressing towards deal

Restricted free-agent forward Jabari Parker and the Chicago Bulls are progressing on an offer sheet deal, league sources told ESPN on Friday.

Parker was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft, though has suffered two ACL tears to his left knee already in his career.

According to Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago, one team which has some level of interest in Parker are the Bulls. Parker's inability to play the 3 limits the number of teams with a positional need for him.

SA's Kevin Anderson foils John Isner to reach maiden Wimbledon final
Anderson had break points in the 15th, 21st and 35th games of the decider before taking victory when a tired Isner hit long. John Isner laid his aces on the table but found a way into the Wimbledon semi-finals by breaking the Milos Raonic serve.

Despite suffering multiple ACL injuries, Parker has shown several glimpses of the very good player he could become. 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.

Aside from the Bulls, the Kings are one of the few teams with available spending money for free agency this offseason. Maybe the Milwaukee Bucks made a decision to give Parker a sizable deal, or maybe another team will swoop in and pay the 25-year-old wing. Don't be surprised if they try to bring Parker home.
