Parker is unlimited, however it’s not clear yet if this will be a straight free agent signing, or whether the two groups will negotiate a sign-and-trade. That all depends on what sort of wage Parker is demanding, and won’t be figured out until offers can become official on Feb. 1. The supermax for veterans like Parker is $221,000 per year, and the Sky only have about $258,000 in cap space, with a couple of roster areas to fill.
As for the Sparks, it will be intriguing to see how they respond. Parker did not have a fantastic relationship with coach Derek Fisher, who also became GM earlier this offseason, and it’s easy to question if that had something to do with her departure.
