Jabari Parker reportedly wanted a max contract extension. That obviously didn’t happen. But how much did the Bucks offer before the rookie-scale-extension window closed? Zach Lowe of ESPN: The Bucks were prepared during those October talks to offer a three-year deal worth around $54 million, according to sources familiar with the discussions. The two sides discussed other permutations — shorter deals, incentive-laden four-year deals — and the talks never narrowed to a single on-paper offer. Still: Milwaukee’s upper limit in annual salary — about $18 million per season — was clear, sources say. I don’t think a healthy Parker would be worth $18 million annually.
