According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Bucks had preliminary trade talks on Jabari Parker.
The Knicks and Rockets have been eyeing one another all off-season with a Melo trade in their sights but the Knicks reportedly have no interest in Ryan Anderson or anyone else that has been made available on the Rockets roster. A three-team deal will remedy the situation for the Knicks and Jabari Parker’s name has recently been brought up as a possibility but there isn’t much smoke just yet. Parker is coming off his second ACL tear but the talent and production has been there when he’s healthy. The Bucks did turn it up a notch when Parker went out last season which happened to coincide with Khris Middleton’s return from injury. A trade involving Parker is unlikely but it is something to keep an eye on as the Bucks build around the Greek Freak.
