The 6-foot-8, 250-pound Parker was once viewed as someone the Bucks could build a franchise around, but serious injuries sustained by the former Duke Blue Devils star have dimmed that belief. Parker has played in only a total of 82 games in the last two seasons, as he spent most of his time rehabbing and recovering from two ACL tears.

Jabari Parker is still just 23, so he still has plenty of time to work his way back into his original form when he first arrived in the NBA as the Bucks’ second overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

The Bucks hit the offseason thinking of ways to create some more leg room in their salary cap, so it’s uncertain how they would approach Parker’s situation should the forward receive a bigger offer from other teams in free agency.

The Sixers, Kings, and the Jazz are among other teams that have reported interests in Parker.
