"Never. I would never rule out a possible return here," Parker told ESPN. "I would never do that. It's just so sad how it ended and I wish I could've stayed," said Parker.

Parker also made a comment to ESPN in regards to the new Bucks arena, Fiserv Forum.

"It's real special, man, how they were able to build this building," Parker told ESPN. "I haven't played here, but just seeing like the growth of the city, I really like the way that it's developing. It's just so sad that I'm not able to share it with them and that they moved on, but that's fine, that's business."
