Donatas Motiejunas

The Houston Rockets would have happily matched the Dallas Mavericks’ offer sheet to Chandler Parsons had Chris Bosh done as expected and inked a contract to create the league’s newest Big Three with James Harden and Dwight Howard. Just don’t tell that to Houston big man Donatas Motiejunas. While discussing the state of his team with basketnews.lt, Motiejunas questioned whether or not Parsons is worth the max-level deal he received from Dallas and wondered if Harden would be comfortable being Houston’s third-highest paid player.

James Harden Says Every Teammate Besides Dwight Howard Is A Role Player

LaMarcus Aldridge, James Harden

The Houston Rockets came into the off-season hoping to make a splash. Instead, they lost Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin in trades designed to open up cap room to acquire a max-level free agent, only to see their main target Chris Bosh return to Miami. On top of that bad luck, the Rockets turned down their option on Chandler Parsons, and he signed a near-max offer sheet with the Dallas Mavericks, which the Rockets failed to match. Despite all this, James Harden doesn’t appear too worried about his team moving forward Read More »

The Dallas Mavericks love playing for Mark Cuban. He’s not only one of the most visibly engaged owners in the NBA, but forges legitimate personal relationships with his players, too. And whether or not Chandler Parsons ultimately becomes a Maverick, he’s clearly developed a unique bond with Cuban already. How else to explain that Cuban was on-hand at a nightclub when Parsons signed his new contract with the Mavs? Read More »
