Jabari Parker, Chicago Bulls making progress on offer sheet

Milwaukee forward Jabari Parker and the Bulls are reportedly closing in on a deal to bring the 6-foot-8 forward back home to Chicago. More

If Parker were to rebound well from injury and take the necessary steps in his development, the Bull's decision to poach would rank as one of the shrewdest moves in National Basketball Association history, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. 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 good news for Parker is that the restricted free agent market for a ton of players has been awfully slow, so his patience might be rewarded. Either way, it's expected to be a two-year deal, a source said.

Local sports anchor Scott Grodsky was able to get some video of Parker playing in the pickup game, which he shared on Twitter last night.

The Kings signed Bulls restricted free agent Zach LaVine to a four-year, $80 million offer sheet last week.

National Basketball Association league sources tell ESPN that restricted free agent forward Jabari Parker and the Chicago Bulls are progressing on a deal. His best season came in 2016-17 when he averaged 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds in 51 games. The Bucks would then have 48 hours to match the deal.
