Jabari Parker's agent Nuno Pedroso denied the Telegraf.rs report that Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade are in advanced talks with an eight-season NBA veteran.

"Jabari is currently looking for a team overseas. He had offers from two NBA teams and was close to signing, but in the end, there was no agreement reached," Pedroso told Mozzart Sport.

"Now, we are looking at other options, primarily overseas. As for Partizan, nothing is close," the agent clarified. "We just informed the club that he is on the market and that he is a free agent. The stories that negotiations are underway are not true."

Parker, 27, last played for the Boston Celtics in 2021-22. He averaged 4.4 points and 2.3 rebounds over 12 games last season.

Selected second overall in the 2014 draft by the Bucks out of Duke, Parker spent four seasons in Milwaukee before playing for the Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards, Atlanta Hawks, Sacramento Kings, and Boston.

His career was slowed down after he tore his left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) twice.

Parker has never regained the form that saw him average 20.1 points and 6.2 rebounds in 51 games in 2016-17 before suffering the second major injury. His first ACL tear came 25 games into his rookie season in December 2014.

Jabari Parker has NBA career averages of 14.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.0 assists throughout 310 games (190 starts). He shoots 32.6 percent from the 3-point range.

Partizan Belgrade have a 7-9 record and share 11th-13th places in the EuroLeague standings.
