Milwaukee Bucks restricted free-agent forward Jabari Parker is progressing toward a deal with the Chicago Bulls, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Bucks can match offers for Parker, but they are hard-capped at $129 million for the 2018-19 season. Chicago is undoubtedly aware of this, and could choose to structure its deal accordingly to pry Parker.

Since being selected No. 2 in the 2014 draft, Parker has averaged 15.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and two assists per game, but the 23-year-old from Simeon has also torn the ACL in his left knee twice in four seasons, which draws hallowing parallels to former Bulls superstar Derrick Rose.

Parker took exception to playing a diminished role under interim head coach Joe Prunty, but the Bucks have since replaced Prunty with Mike Budenholzer.
