–Christian Wood scored 27 points to lead the Bucks in the loss.
Jabari Parker is no longer a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. The number two overall draft pick in the 2014 draft reached an agreement with the Bucks to rescind the team’s qualifying offer to him – a move which made him an unrestricted free agent. Moments after the team made that announcement, it was revealed that Parker had agreed to a two-year contract with the Chicago Bulls, worth $40 million. Parker is a Chicago native and played high school basketball there before starring at Duke. Parker had his best season in Milwaukee in 2016-17, where he averaged 20 points, six rebounds and and two assists per game in 51 games. That season was cut short after Parker tore the ACL in his left knee for the second time.
