Roster Updates • ft. Jabari Parker to Chicago

The restricted free agent dominoes continue to fall.

With yesterday's signing of Jabari Parker, the Chicago Bulls may have rounded out their starting five for 2018-19.

With plans to play Jabari at the 3, the lineup could look like this:


PG Kris Dunn

SG Zach LaVine

SF Jabari Parker

PF Lauri Markkanen

C Wendell Carter Jr.


An intriguing 5...for a few reasons:

  • Average age of their projected starters is around 22 years old
  • Can J. Parker thrive at SF?
  • Will shots be distributed well between Markkanen, Parker & LaVine?
  • Can Wendell Carter Jr. protect the interior from Day 1/Does he beat out Robin Lopez for the nod?

Chicago may not be done dealing, as veterans Robin Lopez & Justin Holiday are on expiring deals, could be moved before the season starts.

But right now, the Bulls have sights set on an immediate turnaround with a young, growing roster.

With Parker now in the fold, a return to the playoffs might just be the goal.
