Jabari Parker, a previous forward for the Boston Celtics, has decided to bring his talents overseas. He has agreed to a one-year contract with FC Barcelona, a team that competes in both the Spanish Liga ACB and the EuroLeague. The 2014 NBA draft’s second overall pick will earn approximately $2 million, and according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the agreement allows him to opt out of the NBA.
Jabari Parker, now 28, has had a lot of trouble with injuries. During his first few years in the league, he tore his ACL twice in the same knee. Jabari Parker had been all over the league before he signed with the Celtics in April 2021. Parker had a good time with the Boston Celtics while on the bench. He had a few good moments while he was in the Hub. In January 2022, Parker was let go by Boston.
Before he signed with FC Barcelona, Jabari Parker was on the summer league team for the Milwaukee Bucks in 2023. Like Kemba Walker, who also used to play for the Celtics, Parker’s move to play in Europe could give him a chance to show off his skills and keep going as a professional basketball player.
