The Milwaukee Bucks have officially made a qualifying offer to Jabari Parker. Here are eight teams who could try to pry him away.
The Milwaukee Bucks officially made a qualifying offer to Jabari Parker, making him a restricted free agent. This means that any offer sheet Parker signs, the Bucks will have every chance in the world to match it.
On the surface, this could be a good thing. It gives Milwaukee the final decision on any Parker-related matter. However, it just takes one team to mess everything up and offer him a ridiculous contract that the Bucks have no interest or desire in matching.
There’s also another option. The Bucks could work out a sign and trade for Parker in order to receive some sort of assets back. This would mean Milwaukee wouldn’t lose the former second overall pick for nothing.
As Gery Woelfel points out, there are a number of suitors for Parker’s services in the free agent market. If the Bucks can agree to some sort of sign and trade deal, that might be a best-case scenario for them. Here are eight teams who are rumored to be interested in prying Parker away from Milwaukee.
