The Chicago Bulls have engaged in trade talks with several teams on Jabari Parker.

Parker is no longer in the Bulls' rotation.

Parker signed a two-year, $40 million contract with the Bulls in the offseason with the second season being a team option.

“It is a surprise because I did everything I could in the time I was given,” Parker said of his demotion.

“But it is what it is. You can’t pout. You’ve just got to keep moving.

“I’m a basketball player. Everybody knows. I especially know for myself. I just have to stay ready.”
