Jabari Parker asks for a place in the Euroleague

There is a race for Jabari Parker out of the NBA and is raging right now. The player has been massively offered by the different leagues to continue his professional adventure outside the United States and he is waiting for a good opportunity to show all his quality soon.

Before the end of 2022, the auction for the player began in basketball circles. It was leaked, in information published by Christos Harpidis, who was looking for a new challenge. Now, just entered 2023, it is confirmed from his agent, Nuno Pedroso, that they are walking on that path. Speaking to Mozzar Sport answer like this: “Jabari is currently looking for a team at an international level. He had two offers from NBA teams and was close to signing, but no deal was reached. Now we are looking at other options, mainly abroad”. He took advantage of the representative to make it clear that he is not close to signing for Partizan Belgrade, as has been suggested in recent reports: “Nothing is closed with them. We have only informed them that the player is free, that he is on the market, the story that the negotiations are ongoing is not true ”.

By level it would be unthinkable not to see Parker on the euroleague. It is the injuries that have prevented Jabari from seeing the best in the NBA and are the ones that could keep him from giving a high performance in the demanding European tournament. He has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee twice, for context.

Boston Celtics was the last team in which he participated. He was with the greens last season, in which they reached the Finals, but only participating in twelve games and with an average of 4.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. He left the prestigious Duke of ‘Coach K’ in 2014, at which time he was selected by the Bucks number two in the draft. He was only surpassed in that event by Andrew Wiggins, now champion, and was above Vasilije Micic (Efes), Walter Tavares (Madrid) or Danté Exum (Partizán), also chosen in the top-5 and with a past of injuries and similar resume. Milwaukee already had a megastar project like Giannis Antetokounmpo, chosen a year earlier, and Parker did not take the step to reach that level, he was later in Chicago, Washington, Atlanta or Sacramento, with physical problems being a continuous rope on his neck, and now it opens to the world.
