According to Joe Horst's comments on Sunday, the lines of communication are still open between the Bucks and Parker's representative, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports & Entertainment, but a deal is not imminent.
"We’ve had great conversations, we’re in contact every day. I think the market will dictate some of it, but we’ll continue to work on it and we’ll see how it turns out,” Horst said on NBA TV. Thus far, the market has not embraced Parker. The No. 2 pick in 2014 who has torn his left ACL twice since then hasn't reached an offer sheet and the number of teams who could offer him a contract the Bucks would be unable to match has dwindled down to only a couple. The interesting aspect of this could come down to whether or not the Bucks are willing to go into the luxury tax as they are currently within about $8 million of the tax line with the 15 projected players on their roster not including Parker.
