Sky, Bulls send off Candace Parker with farewells


Last Saturday, Candace Parker announced her signing with the Las Vegas Aces in free agency, simultaneously saying her goodbyes to her hometown team, the Chicago Sky. 

The Sky and the Chicago Bulls bid farewell to Parker, who not only spent the last two years with the Sky, but is also a Chicagoland native.
