Jabari Parker Signs Two-Year, $40M Deal With Bulls

The Chicago Bulls are close to reaching a deal with Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker, ESPN's Adrian Wajnarowski reported on Friday afternoon.

The Milwaukee Bucks saw the official departure of forward Jabari Parker after four seasons after he inked a two-year, $40 million deal with the Chicago Bulls on the open market once the team rescinded their qualifying offer.

Despite the injuries, Parker has still managed to be a productive player when on the court, averaging 15.3 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game during his time in Milwaukee. He's a four-year veteran but has played more than 51 games in a single season just once because of injuries.

"Jabari and I felt it was in the best interest of both he and the team to rescind our qualifying offer", Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a statement.

Jeff Bezos's net worth has increased by more than $60bn in the last 12 months, which makes him the world's richest man . Right now, Gates has a net worth of $95.5 billion, nearly $50 billion less than Bezos.

However, earlier this week the Bulls announced that they had renounced their rights to restricted free-agent David Nwaba, opening up the cap space and rotation spot for Parker. Regardless, Parker is seen as one of the better players who can come off the bench in this league. Parker has played his best ball at the power forward spot, which is now anchored by second-year pro and potential franchise star Lauri Markkanen.

Parker, a Chicago native, has torn his ACL in his left knee twice during his career. Going into his second season with the Bucks, Wilson looks poised to take that leap into the rotation after appearing in only 22 games last season.

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

"I am extremely grateful to the Bucks and the incredible fans of Milwaukee for showing me so much love and encouragement", Parker said.
