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.

Tyson Chandler, who just happens to have been traded back to Dallas in June. Read More »
