Jabari Parker, along with Bobby Portis, was traded from Chicago Bulls to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
On Saturday, they returned to the United Center to haunt their former team in the Wizards’ 134-125 victory over the Bulls.
While Portis pulled in 12 rebounds and gave the Bulls bench plenty of glares, Parker was especially effective at the other end, scoring 20 points and going 60 per cent from the field.

Otto Porter Jr, who went the other way it the trade, scored 17 points for the Bulls, but it felt like an afterthought, and Parker made sure everyone in Chicago would remember his return with this huge dunk on his former team.

From Chris Paul’s slick move to find Kenneth Faried in Houston’s ding-dong clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder, to Melvin Frazier Jr’s windmill slam for the Magic in their win over the Bucks, there was plenty to admire on Saturday night.
There was even some joy for fans of the hapless Knicks. They may have slumped to a franchise-record-tying 26th straight defeat, but Dennis Smith Jr’s alley-oop lay-up off the glass for DeAndre Jordan was just bliss.
