One year guaranteed. Parker is an extremely talented player. If he can get healthy he's a terrific piece. Not a bad risk at all.

When he is healthy he has produced, but with ACL issues who knows. One year tryout
Still crazy

I actually like both of the moves with how they are essentially one year tryout deals and still give us the ability to have a lot of cap room next summer.

good point. but I think he got so much the first year, because the second year is a team option. if, for some outside chance, he plays out of his mind this year he could probably command high $20s in the open market. too bad, the bulls can retain him at $20 mil for next season too. that's probably a long shot, but I'm sure that's why both sides agreed to this deal. like tb said, just a 1 year prove it deal that could be beneficial for the bulls next year if his play meets or exceeds $20 mil/year production. if not, we weren't competing for anything this year, either way, so who cares how much our team salary is? besides the owner, of course lol

obviously they had the cap space and I dont think anybody else was out there, so its worth a flyer. I dont expect much from him though this year...Crazy how both him and Rose both Simeon guys have had such terrible ACL issues. maybe its those ridiculous schedules they are playing at high school level putting hard wear and tear on still developing bodies?

It sure makes a nice young core of guys for a lineup with Dunn - Lavine - Parker  - Markannen(sp?) - Carter Jr

Plus there's a guard who's been tearing it up in the Summer League who was on the G-League team last year who might get the bump up.

definitely! it's nice to be an up and coming team with lots of promise in future years. versus a good (not great) team that everyone knows will got bounced out of the playoffs before the season starts (looking at you Toronto!)

They have some nice pieces.i'm not sure any of them are going to be a guy that can win you a championship though. but if they can ever get that guy they could be dangerous.  Id like to say maybe free agency, but lets be honest the Bulls have not signed a super franchise impacting free agent maybe ever
