The Atlanta Hawks and NBA free agent Jabari Parker have reportedly come to an agreement on a two-year contract, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The deal is reportedly worth $13 million.

Splitting time with the Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls last year due to a trade, Parker averaged 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.

The 24-year-old is a five-year veteran already, having come out of Duke following a spectacular freshman campaign. He was the second overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft.

Parker’s best campaign came during the 2016-17 season with the Milwaukee Bucks when he averaged 20.1 points per game. He’s an adept scorer who should give Atlanta’s offense a lift.
