Jabari Parker's marriage with the Milwaukee Bucks seems to be dissolving, as the No. 2 pick in the 2014 draft reportedly has his heartstrings pulling him in another direction.

The 23-year-old restricted free agent would like to join his hometown Chicago Bulls, sources told NBC Sports Chicago's Vincent Goodwill.

The market for Parker has been tepid as money and space to sign a big-ticket contract have dried up as the second week of free agency comes to a close. In addition to unfavorable market trends, the Chicago-born forward has missed considerable time over his first four seasons, tearing the ACL in his left knee in both years one and three, among other injuries.

When he has played, Parker's averaged 15.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, two assists, and a steal per night.

So far, the only money on the table is the Bucks' relatively meager qualifying offer of $4.3 million for next season. Should Parker elect to sign that deal, he would return to the open market next summer as an unrestricted free agent. Milwaukee has until 11:59 p.m. ET Friday night to decide whether to pull Parker's qualifying offer.
