After another underwhelming season, the Washington Wizards are set to undergo somewhat of a rebuild this summer, and Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the team is set to decline the final year of Jabari Parker's deal:

The Washington Wizards will decline the 2019-20 team option on Jabari Parker’s contract, and the forward will become an unrestricted free agent on June 30, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Wizards are very much open to re-signing Parker and the interest is mutual.

Parker averaged 15 points and 7.2 rebounds in 25 games with the Wizards after joining from the Chicago Bulls ahead of the February trade deadline. As Haynes' report states, the Wizards are eager to bring Parker back for the 19-20 season, although they are unwilling to shell out $20 million.
