I’m a mess of conflicting emotions.

Jabari Parker is a very talented scorer. He is a good offensive basketball player. He is not a very good defensive player.

He has had two serious injuries to one of his knees.

But he is young and talented.

He is an asset that could be flipped at some point in the future for more draft picks or another talented player.

He doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the Bulls current roster.

He is a small forward that plays like a power forward.

It’s only a 2 year deal.


Parker, Lauri Markkanen, and Wendell Carter Jr. would be a BIG line up.

How are Kris Dunn and Carter/Robin Lopez expected to guard the entirety of the opposing team?

Here’s a fun line up to think about:

PG – Zach LaVine

SG – Lauri Markkanen

SF – Wendell Carter Jr

PF – Jabari Parker

C – Bobby Portis


I think I might be going crazy.

The Bulls let David Nwaba go.

They just let him walk. No sign and trade. No multi-year with just the first year guaranteed. No “prove it” deal. They let him walk… for nothing.

Maybe they’ll use one of their exceptions to re-sign Nwaba.

Jabari Parker is coming home to Chicago: yay?
