Report: Bulls have interest in Jabari Parker
The Chicago Bulls reportedly have interest in restricted free agent forward Jabari Parker.
Parker, currently of the Milwaukee Bucks, is a Chicago native, and the Bulls are looking at the 23-year-old as a potential addition, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.
I'm told that Jabari Parker, who was born and raised in Chicago, has received interest from the Chicago Bulls. The 23-year-old is a restricted free agent, so the Milwaukee Bucks can match any offer sheet he signs.

It’s not really clear how serious the Bucks are about holding on to Parker. There have been numerous reports about behind-the-scenes drama, and he averaged only 24 minutes per game for them last season. That was in part due to recovery from an ACL tear, but that is the second major factor, as he’s suffered such an injury twice already. That said, he’s still only 23 and is very talented, so it probably depends on how far the Bulls are willing to go if they do make an offer.
