MILWAUKEE -- NBA free-agency is underway and many big names like LeBron James, Chris Paul and Paul George have signed with teams. However, Jabari Parker is still unsigned and is now receiving interest from his hometown, the Chicago Bulls.
According to NBA insider Alex Kennedy, the Parker rumors could have him returning to where he played high school basketball, Simeon. It is the same high school that former NBA MVP Derrick Rose played at.
I'm told that Jabari Parker, who was born and raised in Chicago, has received interest from the Chicago Bulls. The 23-year-old is a restricted free agent, so the Milwaukee Bucks can match any offer sheet he signs.

There has been no official word from anyone besides Kennedy, meaning these are strictly rumors at the moment. The Bucks have cap-space issues, and the Bulls are rebuilding and have a large amount of money to spend in free-agency. The possibility is there, but the Bucks can still match any deal given to the forward.
It is also worth mentioning that the Bulls are working on re-signing Zach LaVine, another young player who has suffered multiple knee injuries. The Bulls, after what happened to Derrick Rose, are sure to be cautious about signing multiple guys with bad injury history.
