Looks like they are signing Jabari Parker.  We'll see what the Bucks do but I think he's going to be a Bull.  I mentioned up-thread that I wasn't crazy about this possibility due to his poor defense.  K.C. Johnson tweeted that they want to try to play him at SF.  LaVine-Parker combo at wing defense is horrible.  Maybe long term they'll be able to play him at the 4 more but I'm struggling to figure out good rotations with Parker for this year.

This makes no sense, this signing. They must really feel they have zero chance of signing a street free agent next summer. They also apparently couldn't care less about defense. 

Parker is likely to be a liability at the 3 spot. He needs to play the 4. Which would make sense if they moved Markkanen to the 5. But now, Wendell Carter lives there. 

This feels like "use the cap space now when no one else has it, accumulate whatever talent we can, and figure out how it all fits later." Either that or they're just trying to assemble the ACL All-Stars and just haven't told us yet.

Option for the 2nd year changes a lot.  I think I'd still have pursued other options but I won't complain about this Jabari signing.  Hoping for the best!

1 year with a team option for year 2 is WAY more palatable than just 2/40. I went from hatred to ambivalence.
