Jabari Parker Receives Qualifying Offer From Bucks

JUNE 30th, 8:09am: The qualifying offers to Parker, Plumlee and Munford have officially been made, according to the RealGM transactions log.

JUNE 29th, 4:37pm: The Bucks have extended a qualifying offer to forward Jabari Parker, making him a restricted free agent, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweets.

The qualifying offer of $4,333,932 comes as no surprise despite Parker’s star-crossed career in which he’s suffered two major knee injuries. He returned from his latest one to play in 31 games last season, including three starts. He averaged 12.6 PPG, 4.9 RPG and 1.9 APG in 24.0 MPG and should be poised to contribute more with a full training camp under his best this fall.

Parker posted averaged of 20.1 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 2.8 APG in 51 games during the 2016/17 season before he tore his left ACL in early February.

It will be interesting to see if the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 draft received a substantial offer sheet despite his injury history. Parker is still just 23 years old after completing four seasons in the league.

The Bucks also extended qualifying offers to their two-way players from last season, center Marshall Plumlee and point guard Xavier Munford, making them restricted free agents.

    I have a feeling either Nets or Mavs offer max deal. Not sure if the Bucks match

    Overdue for Parker to perform and earn his money. He wants minutes handed to him. Does not want to compete; whiner. Shut up and get in the weight room.

    • You have NO idea what you’re talking about ALL IN AD. The young man is one of the remarkably bright and articulate players in the league and conducts himself with utmost professionalism. He’s had two major knee surgeries and before being injured looked like the second coming of Charles Barkley.

      I’m really sick of the 14 year old NBA2K ‘fans’ commenting on this page.

        jbl expect during the season Parker was complaining about not getting enough minutes. With all the hype he had coming out of college he hasn’t come close to living up to it. No team in their right mind would run him out there 35 minutes a game because his knees are more fragile than Curry’s ankles.

    I don’t think he’s worth max money but def worth more than 4m. maybe 15m a year

    One season at $6m, if he gets through unscathed and ticks the relevant boxes, then offer him 4year/$70m

  5. happyaccidents

    In 4 seasons Parker has missed more games than he’s played, how can he deserve a max deal

  6. I do like Jabari but… I am not sure if he will ever be the same player that once he could have been, I think he might find it hard to see & understand this. Shouldn’t look for a big contract, just to go some place where he can have fun, try to find out who he is as a player right now & try to get strong for the future. All the best Jabari.

  7. Jabari does need to do a 1 year contract to prove himself then go unrestricted next year.

    i think jabari could make a team a contender, his ceiling is high yes so is the injury risk but coming out this guy was the best in his class n he also is a professional
