The Chicago Bulls are engaged in trade talks regarding Jabari Parker amid reports that the forward has fallen out of Chicago's rotation, reports the Chicago Tribune's KC Johnson.

The Bulls also won't want to take on salary that stretches beyond the 2018-'19 season.

The Chicago Bulls brought Jabari Parker back home as a free agent last offseason, with an idea he'd reach his full potential and be a big part of a fresh rebuild.

Ahead of Thursday's game in Mexico City, which the Bulls lost to Orlando 97-91, ESPN's Malika Andrews reported that the 23-year old forward would no longer be apart of the Bulls rotation.

With LaVine sidelined, Boylen has options, including sliding Justin Holiday to the two, and starting Parker if Hutchison can't go.

"It is a surprise because I did everything I could in the time I was given", Parker said, per ESPN.

You can bet any team considering a trade for Parker will try to unload an equally bad contract with multiple years remaining, so this drama could continue well into the new year. "You can't pout. You just got to keep moving". "It's about playing your minutes the best you can", Boylen said.

That the Bulls paid two great Chicago basketball players in Wade and Parker almost $60 million for 89 games (and counting) shows both a desperate desire to recreate the Derrick Rose magic of.
