I don’t think he will opt in especially If he isn’t even getting on the court when the two main rotational forwards/centers are out. He is a proven 15-17 ppg 5-7 rpg guy so it’s not like he needs a showcase to make it so he’s not leaving too much money on the table to move to a situation where playing time is more of a certainty to showcase for that elusive longer term deal. I’m sure Parker will have his chances at points over the next 24 games though to play himself in.
I only see him getting time as another option at the 4 if Barnes gets hurt.
He is worse than Belly in all phases as a big, and Bogi/Buddy/Bazemore pair much better with Barnes.
Whatever he gives on offense is canceled out by his defense and lack of floor spacing with our non shooting PGs.
You can also interpret the situation as the insertion of Parker is bit trickier than Len as far as understanding Luke Walton's ever-changing () system that took our generally unhealthy team most of the season to even grasp since Parker is more integral than the big man Len.
Not trying to throw shade like Harden at the bigs or anything...
