Chandler Parsons said on KESN-FM 103.3 on Thursday that the Rockets told him they would match any offer he received in restricted free agency.

"Before this whole process started, they had told me ‘You’ve earned this," Parsons recalled. "You deserve this. Go and sign the best deal for your career. Just know in the back of your mind that we plan on matching.’ Throughout the process, I definitely thought they were gonna match the contract." The Rockets instead decided to let Parsons join the Mavericks on a three-year $46 million deal.

Chandler Parsons thinks Mark Cuban is the best owner in sports.

Speaking about Cuban's impact on his free agency decision, Parson's didn't hold back his praise for the Mavericks' owner. "I've developed a relationship with him throughout the years. I truly think he's the best owner in sports...I just have a special relationship with him. I trust him." Parsons averaged 16.6 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.2 steals in a breakout season with Houston last year and should provide solid mid-round fantasy value playing alongside Dirk Nowitzki.

Chandler Parsons was surprised when Houston did not match Dallas' offer.

"I definitely was a little surprised that they didn’t match," Parsons said. "I thought that was the plan going forward that they were going to [match]. But I think [agent] Dan Fegan and my agency ... did a great job with this contract and really put pressure on them. They decided what they thought was best for their future and they told me to go get my best individual contract, and we both did what we thought was best for ourselves." Rockets GM Daryl Morey stated that Parsons contract was "untradeable," which was his reasoning behind not matching Dallas' offer.

The Mavericks are hopeful that newly-signed Chandler Parsons will double as pitchman that will recruit other stars to Dallas.

The Mavericks office is hoping that Chandler can serve as the heir apparent to Dirk Nowitzki as face of the franchise and bring a LeBron James-like recruiting ability. "Probably our greatest marketing asset is our owner, Mark Cuban, but I heard he's in a run for his money because Chandler Parsons is going to supposedly try to take that baton from him," Mavericks president Donnie Nelson said. "From what I've heard he's a terrific teammate. He's very friendly and the guys really enjoy being around him."

Chandler Parsons has received his first invitation to join the 2014 Men's National Training Camp in Las Vegas.

This is Parsons' first time attending the men's training camp in Las Vegas, and he will be competing for the small forward spot with the likes of Paul George, Kevin Durant, and DeMar DeRozan.

The Rockets have decided not to match the Mavericks' three-year, $46 million offer sheet for Chandler Parsons.

The two teams are discussing a potential sign-and-trade which would create a traded-player exception for Houston, but either way Parsons will start at SF for the Mavericks next season. He gives Dallas a very intriguing starting lineup of Raymond Felton, Monta Ellis, Parsons, Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler, and there's still a chance that Dallas will upgrade their PG situation before opening night. The Rockets' tempo was ideal for fantasy purposes, but Chandler has shown that he can score in transition or in the half-court, with or without the ball, and he should fare well as a top option alongside Dirk and Monta in Dallas.

The Rockets are still "strongly considering" matching Dallas' offer sheet on restricted free agent Chandler Parsons.

After just signing Trevor Ariza to a four-year, $32 million deal today, it's going to be awfully tough to invest another $45 million over three years to a small forward. The Rockets do play a lot of small ball, but they might want to use their cap space elsewhere. They'll have one more day to match.

If Chris Bosh agrees to sign with the Rockets, they will likely match the Mavericks' offer sheet for Chandler Parsons.

LeBron James' decision to leave the Heat puts Houston in a great position to sign Bosh. If they do land him, sources tell beat writer Jonathan Feigen that the Rockets feel "it would be worth paying a stiff luxury tax" to have a core that included James Harden, Dwight Howard, Bosh and Parsons.
Jul 11 - 12:53 PM

A sign-and-trade between the Rockets and Mavericks for Chandler Parsons is not happening, according to Sam Amick of USA today.

Amick also reports that the Rockets have the signed offer sheet for Parsons, so their three-day window to match it has officially begun. The Rockets are hoping to have an answer from Chris Bosh on their max contract offer before they have to make any decisions about Parsons. But until LeBron James makes his decision, free agency will remain at a relative stand-still.
Jul 10 - 3:05 PM

The Dallas Mavericks haven't submitted Chandler Parsons' offer sheet to the Rockets as of Thursday afternoon.

This is good news for the Rockets as they don't have the 72-hour countdown ticking as they wait for Chris Bosh's decision on their max contract offer. The Mavericks are reportedly waiting to submit the offer sheet in case a sign-and-trade materializes that general manager Donnie Nelson thinks could help both teams. "There’s ways that both sides can win, so it’s just an ongoing process," Nelson said on Thursday. It is assumed that Houston will match Parsons' offer sheet if Bosh decides to join the Rockets, but this situation is just another that has been put in LeBron stand-by mode.
Jul 10 - 1:07 PM

The Rockets will match Chandler Parson's offer sheet if they are able to land Chris Bosh, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Parsons signed a three-year, $45 million offer sheet with the Mavericks on Wednesday and the Rockets will match that offer sheet if they are able to pry Bosh away from the Heat. The puzzle pieces get a little more complicated if Bosh stays with Miami and matching the offer sheet would become a "close call", according to Feigen. LeBron James' destination would seemingly be the first domino that will set off this chain of events, so we'll be closely monitoring his decision and its concurrent ripple effects.
Jul 10 - 11:42 AM

Restricted free agent Chandler Parsons and the Mavericks have reached agreement on three-year offer sheet worth in excess of $45 million, according to

He will sign the deal early Thursday and the Rockets will have three days to match. The Rockets will certainly be hoping LeBron James makes his decision, which will then dictate how Chris Bosh will make his move. Parsons was fantastic in the Rockets' system and his skill set would be maximized in Houston. Yes, this means Parsons will make more money than Dirk Nowitzki. The third year is a player option.
Jul 9 - 6:56 PM

The Mavs are reportedly pursuing restricted free agent Chandler Parsons as a backup plan if Carmelo Anthony chooses to go elsewhere.

The Mavs know that their chances of nabbing LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony in free agency are close to zero, so they are now targeting Parsons. They also reportedly have interest in unrestricted free agents Trevor Ariza and Luol Deng. However, if Houston misses out on Chris Bosh/Carmelo Anthony, they're a lock to match any offer Parsons receives on the open market.
Jul 7 - 2:41 PM

The Dallas Mavericks are expected to meet with restricted free agent Chandler Parsons.

The Mavericks are neck-deep in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but will also meet with Parsons and Trevor Ariza, according to sources. The Rockets have the option of matching any offer that Parsons receives, but they have also shown interest in LeBron James and Anthony and likely wouldn't be able to retain Parsons if they land either superstar. This game of musical chairs still has a few songs left to play, so we may not have any clarity on Parsons' situation until James and Anthony have decided upon their destinations.
