Since he is a restricted free agent, the Bucks would have the right to match any offer sheet that Parker is signed to by another team.
Parker, who has spent his first four National Basketball Association seasons with the Bucks, is now a restricted free agent. Maybe the Milwaukee Bucks made a decision to give Parker a sizable deal, or maybe another team will swoop in and pay the 25-year-old wing. He signed his first NBA contract with Milwaukee on July 9, 2014. Valentine has averaged 8.0 points and 4.1 rebounds per game during his career and is a bit undersized since he's playing out of position; he's a more natural shooting guard.
