After a season of instability, Jabari Parker has found a new home, signing a two-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania.

Once a promising young prospect with the Milwaukee Bucks, the former No. 2 pick was regulated to the bench. He signed on with the Chicago Bulls last off-season but was traded mid-season to the Washington Wizards.

Ultimately, he declined his Player Option to become a free agent again.
Parker joins a talented, up-and-coming Hawks team that could make a playoff push as soon as this season. Along with Trae Young and John Collins, the Duke product could become an integral part of this team. Still just 24-years-old, Parker fits right into the state of their team.

With the acquisitions of Evan Turner and Chandler Parsons, Parker will certainly have to earn his work before being handed a ton of minutes.

He averaged 14.5 points and 6.6 rebounds, mostly coming off the bench. If the fit is right, he could be a valuable scoring option with the second unit.
