Report: Bulls Engaged in Trade Talks on Jabari Parker

The Chicago Bulls are engaged in trade talks regarding Jabari Parker amid reports that the forward has fallen out of Chicago’s rotation, reports the Chicago Tribune’s KC Johnson.

The return of Lauri Markkanen and Bobby Portis has created a log jam at the power forward position, and Parker appears to be the odd man out.

When Parker signed a two-year, $40 million deal this summer, he proclaimed that teams “don’t pay players to play defense.”

Issue is, they might not play you.
