After Jabari Parker just played four minutes in the first half of the Bulls vs Magic game in Mexico City, the bulls have decided to cut Parker out of the rotation. Parker was scoreless in the four minutes he played and didn’t play the second half of the game.
According to ESPN In a interview Parker called the move a “surprise”. Parker said "It is a surprise because I did everything I could in the time I was given," Parker said. "But it is what it is. You can't pout. You just got to keep moving."
This passed offseason Parker signed a 2 year $40 million deal. Parker started the season as the 6th man for the Bulls, but due to injury’s to key players like Lauri Markkanen he was moved to the starting lineup.
After Markkanen returned to the lineup Parker was returned to the 6th man role. Since the bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg and promoted Jim Boylen to head coaching position.
It will be interesting to see what will happen with Parker. Could it perhaps be the Bulls just added Parker to the bench so they could tank? Just a theory, but it could be possible.
