Former No. 2 Overall Pick Looking Overseas For Work

He was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, but he's been unable to secure a contract for the coming season as two potential deals with NBA teams fell through. So Jabari Parker is now looking to take his talents to Europe.

Parker's agent confirmed the 27-year-old's intentions. "Jabari is currently looking for a team overseas," Nuno Pedroso said. "He had offers from two NBA teams and was close to signing, but in the end, there was no agreement reached. Now, we are looking at other options, primarily overseas."

Parker was looking set to fulfill his No. 2 draft pick status until he suffered a pair of ACL injuries in his first three seasons that derailed his career. His 8-year averages in the NBA are 14.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists. 

The 6'8" power forward was last with the Boston Celtics last season where he played 12 games averaging just about nine minutes per contest and 4.4 points. 

One of the teams that is rumored to be interested in Parker is Partizan in Serbia. If he is to sign there, it would create an interesting reunion. 

No. 5 pick in the 2014 Draft, Dante Exum, is also with Partizan. But no word yet on Parker's definite destination.
