Parker, 23, has suffered two different ACL tears in his left knee during his career and, as a result, hasn't exactly been a flawless fit in Milwaukee during the first four years of his National Basketball Association career. Also, Bayern Munich GM Marko Pesic has also mentioned that the club wouldn't say no to Zipser returning to the Bavarians, the team which the player spent three years before signing with the Bulls in 2016.

Multiple outlets report that Parker had agreed to a two-year, $40 million contract with the Chicago Bulls, who were reportedly attempting to sign him as a restricted free agent. Milwaukee rescinded the qualifying offer it had made to Parker, making him an unrestricted free agent. "We look forward to welcoming him back to his hometown", said Gar Forman, Chicago Bulls General Manager. He had his second ACL surgery on his knee in February.

While some of the future National Basketball Association stars are lighting up the court in Las Vegas in Summer League, Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker chose to take his game to the blacktop and take on some fans in a pickup game.

"From the moment the Bucks drafted Jabari with the No. 2 pick in the 2014 Draft, they have gone out of their way to treat Jabari as a member of the Bucks family, and this is another flawless example of doing exactly that, and we're very appreciative". The Bulls want to add him to a young core that includes Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr. He has missed 145 games in his four-year career due to his troublesome knee. Last season, he averaged 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game after recovering from a torn ACL.
