Parker, 24, became a free agent after the Wizards declined the last year of his two-year, $40 million contract in June. According to reports, the two sides expected to work something out before Parker decided to leave for Atlanta.
He was drafted No. 2 overall by the Bucks in 2014 and remained with the team until 2018, when he signed a $20 million contract with the Bulls. He was traded to the Wizards before the deadline in February.
While talented, two severe knee injuries have derailed Parker’s career. In 25 games with the Wizards, he averaged 15.9 points and 7.2 rebounds.
