Parker played in just 31 games a year ago.

The Chicago Bulls are close to reaching a deal with Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker, ESPN's Adrian Wajnarowski reported on Friday afternoon.

According to Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago, one team which has some level of interest in Parker are the Bulls.

Their roster could use help at small forward too, considering the lineup most often used by Chicago featured Denzel Valentine at small forward. Last season, he averaged 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game after recovering from a torn ACL.

Despite suffering multiple ACL injuries, Parker has shown several glimpses of the very good player he could become.

Parker, who has spent his first four National Basketball Association seasons with the Bucks, is now a restricted free agent.

Parker is a career 35.2 percent 3-point shooter. The Bulls don't yet know if they're signing Parker to a deal as an unrestricted free agent or to an offer sheet as a restricted free agent.
