Jabari Parker was targeted by Knicks, Nets, Kings prior to landing with Bulls

Jabari Parker, Bulls

The Chicago Bulls made the big-splash move this offseason by inking forward Jabari Parker to a two-year, $40 million deal to bring him to his hometown.

According to Gery Woelfel of Woelfel Press Box, Parker had also received interest on the open market from the Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets, and New York Knicks.

Although he has suffered a pair of ACL tears, Parker has shown plenty of promise to develop into a cornerstone player for the franchise. He has shown that he can be a highly-reliable scorer that has only continued to expand his game to be a more versatile offensive threat. Despite that, there are still some questions about his long-term health due to the type of injuries that he’s already suffered in his first four years in the league.

Parker has a critical campaign ahead of him where he could prove that he can finally fulfill the potential that was set forth ahead of him as being a former second overall pick.
