Of course, like with everything else in this ill-fated 2nd year of the Bulls' rebuild, Parker's status is subject to change.The Trib's KC Johnson reports leading scorer Zach LaVine is doubtful for Saturday's game in San Antonio after injuring his left ankle in the closing seconds of Thursday's loss to Orlando.

Utah has previously played in three preseason games in Mexico City, in 2003 most recently, but never in the regular season.

Chicago has elected to abort on this experiment after it was reported that Parker had fallen out of the team's rotation.

After Thursday night's game, even with Chandler Hutchison sidelined due to illness, Boylen chalked up Parker's lack of minutes to the matchup. He also said that the league will play in Mexico "for many years to come", although there is no official agreement beyond this season.

Should the Spurs be one of those teams, and what would a potential trade look like?

Brownlee, who was featured in this year's recap, thoughtfully breaks down why everyone is hating on the video. The Rewind 2018 video had only received 2.1 million likes which gives it a dislike ratio of nearly 84%.

Issue is, they might not play you. That report was confirmed during the contest, as Parker barely saw any time on the court.

A buyout of Parker is a faint and unlikely possibility for the Bulls, but other teams can assume he's on the trade block. "You can't pout. You just got to keep moving".

"Going forward, he's part of our team, and it's not about the individual, it's about the team", Boylen added.

When Parker signed a two-year, $40 million deal this summer, he proclaimed that teams "don't pay players to play defense".

Parker was initially signed to be the Bulls' sixth-man but when Markkanen went down before the season, he jumped into the Bulls' starting lineup at power forward and put up decent offensive production, averaging 15.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. "It's about playing your minutes the best you can", Boylen said, per ESPN.
