Parker’s tenure in Milwaukee was ultimately a failure. Once the No. 2 pick, injuries limited him from reaching his full effectiveness, including an ACL tear that kept him out for much of the first half of last season. He’s also had to cope with questions about his attitude.
That said, Parker is a little more than a year removed from a season in which he averaged 20 points per game. He now gets to play in his hometown, where the Bulls are betting on his talent.
