Chandler Parsons Says Dallas Is “Nicer, Cleaner” Than Houston

Chandler Parsons

The three-year, $46 million offer sheet that Chandler Parsons signed with the Dallas Mavericks might have been the means of his departure from the nearby Houston Rockets. But according to Dirk Nowitzki’s latest running mate, the cleanliness of his new team’s town is another boon compared to his old one’s.

Coach Carlisle On Chandler Parsons: “Not Quite In Shape Yet,” But “Will Be Shortly”

Chandler Parsons

New Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons has added some bulk this offseason. While some might see it as added strength, perhaps as an attempt to back up Dirk Nowitzki at power forward, coach Rick Carlisle is of the belief, “One man’s bulking up, is another man’s not quite in shape yet.” That’s what Carlisle told Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News, but the coach is sure Chandler will get in shape soon.

Rumor: Rockets Let Parsons Out Of Contract As Part Of Dwight Howard’s Deal

Chandler Parsons, Dwight Howard

When the Rockets declined their fourth-year option on Chandler Parsons in early June, the reaction was split whether they were making a mistake. Dallas’ three-year, $45 million offer sheet lured him away from Houston permanently, and many blamed GM Daryl Morey for making an unusual (for him) tactical mistake. But a new report makes it seem like Houston’s decision to forego Parsons’ fourth year, that would have meant paying him less than $1 million before he became an unrestricted free agent next summer, might have been tied to Dwight Howard‘s decision to sign with Houston in the summer of 2013 since agent Dan Fegan represents both players.
