The Milwaukee Bucks have until Oct. 31 to reach an agreement on an extension with Jabari Parker, and the 22-year-old forward reportedly doesn’t plan to give the team a discount in negotiations. 

The Racine Journal Times‘ Gery Woelfel reported Parker’s representatives are looking for a five-year contract potentially worth between $146 million and $175 million.

While Parker’s desire for a max extension is understandable, he arguably hasn’t done enough to justify such a significant financial outlay from Milwaukee’s perspective.

Since the Bucks selected him second overall in the 2014 draft, Parker has appeared in 152 games, averaging 15.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists. He was especially good in 2016-17, when he scored 20.1 points a game and shot 36.5 percent from beyond the arc.
