The Milwaukee Bucks appear to be stuck again. They have a superstar in Giannis, but beyond that there’s quite a mess to sort out. It probably starts with hiring an intelligent coach, but they have plenty of roster questions as well. One such question happens to be Jabari Parker, who’s reportedly uncertain about his future with the Bucks.
“Honestly, ita��s uncertain. I know that, just looking from afar, [the Bucks] will be fine. … But I just have to see whata��s going to happen with my future, and thata��s uncertain. But I know for them, theya��ll be fine regardless. Theya��ve been doing well.”
Parker, of course, is coming off his second ACL tear. And he knows that he just has to be ready. But that’s never easy either.
“You just have to be prepared. Prepare for the worst. … Anything can happen. Ia��ve seen it happen a lot of times. So I just would like to keep that mentality because you never want to be comfortable in this business.”
The Bucks are currently clinging to the eight-seed out east, and they are likely to wrap that up. But that’s not good enough. As for Parker, he is averagingA�11.9 points on 48.8 percent shooting from the field and 38.5 percent from deep, to go along with 4.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in a career-low 22.7 minutes per game off the bench.
Needless to say, with Parker slated to become a restricted free agent, it’s going to be an interesting offseason for him in the Bucks. Should they keep Parker or move on?
