Since he is a restricted free agent, the Bucks would have the right to match any offer sheet that Parker is signed to by another team. Hopefully 2018-2019 can be the year he establishes himself in the bigs, if not with a different club than the Milwaukee Bucks.
Parker is now a restricted free agent and the Bucks have extended him the one-year qualifying offer of $4.3 million.
Aside from the Bulls, the Kings are one of the few teams with available spending money for free agency this offseason. But LaVine returned to Chicago after it matched the deal last week.
Beyond that, there are other questions surrounding Parker as a long-term option in Milwaukee, though, and debate over his fit would certainly apply equally in Chicago. The Bulls would add him to a young core that includes Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr.
The Bucks have until 11:59 p.m.
Parker is on the verge of agreeing to a two-year, $40 million contract with the Chicago Bulls. Central to pull their qualifying offer, which would make Parker an unrestricted free agent. My hopes and desires are with Parker bucking the trend.
