NBA: Chiacgo Bulls-Media Day

Former Blue Devil Jabari Parker signed with the Chicago Bulls this summer after knee injuries diminished his value for the team that drafted him, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Chicago is home though and there’s a lot to be said for that when you need a place to reboot.

As part of that, the Bulls have moved him, at least for now, to the second team where they’re asking him to be, more or less, a point forward.

It’s a change to be sure but Parker seems willing to accept it as he rounds back into peak shape.

Of course one of his new teammates is fellow former Blue Devil Wendell Carter and the rookie Carter seems to be taking to the NBA just fine.
