Jabari Parker won’t be with the Bulls next season.
Heck, he might not be with them much longer. The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen’s rotation Thursday.
There’s considerable interest in Parker, 23, who remains a versatile scorer. Finding the right match financially is the obstacle that needs to be cleared, but there’s motivation to get a deal done.

The Phoenix Suns will meet with former BYU star and Sacramento Kings first-round pick Jimmer Fredette on Thursday, according to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro.
