Report Jabari Parker wants to play for his hometown Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls are close to reaching a deal with Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker, ESPN's Adrian Wajnarowski reported on Friday afternoon.

Parker, the No. 2 pick in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft, has averaged 15.3 points and 5.5 rebounds over four seasons.

Parker, 23, has played his entire career thus far with the Milwaukee Bucks but could switch teams this offseason.


Though Parker has alternated between power and small forward, the Bulls' initial plan is to start him at small forward, a position of need. Last season, he returned to action after a lengthy recovery period from his second ACL injury and put up 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds in 31 games for the Bucks. The 2012 Gatorade National Player of the Year is actually from Chicago, as HoopsHype's Alex Kennedy noted when free agency began.

Parker is from Chicago and the Bulls are one of the only teams with cap space.

Parker is a career 35.2 percent 3-point shooter. Don't be surprised if they try to bring Parker home.
