Windhorst: Jabari Parker could be on Lakers 'within the next few days'


Bullock would be appealing to the Lakers because he is an expiring contract as he is on the last year of a two-year, $5 million deal, but his 3-point shooting also appeals to them.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, speaking on The Hoop Collective podcast, one of those names is Chicago's Jabari Parker.

While Chicago is looking to part ways with 23-year-old forward Jabari Parker prior to the 2019 NBA Trade Deadline on February 7, Los Angeles is looking to trade guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. "Now I'm not saying this deal is going to get done, but one place they have talked to is Chicago for Jabari Parker". But, the Bulls do have the trade pieces and potential in free agency this off-season to make for an ideal situation a superstar like Davis to wind up in. "I've been working to get my finger back healthy". Also, Parker is still only 23 and perhaps the Lakers believe LA will be his first true National Basketball Association home.

"Jabari Parker could be a Laker in the next few days", Windhorst said.

Perhaps the Lakers feel the former No. 2 overall pick still has potential and would do well in their organization.

Parker has had numerous "DNP" games this season since Jim Boylen replaced head coach Fred Hoiberg in December.

Especially if the Lakers are still interested in Carmelo Anthony, it would not be likely for both he and Parker to be on the same roster because they play such similar styles.

The Lakers make 10.2 3-pointers per game which is tied for 20th in the National Basketball Association.

The deadline is near, and Los Angeles is looking to shape things up as they sit 10th in the Western Conference with a 27-26 record.
