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.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 1 - 10:07 AM

The Lakers are reportedly interested in signing restricted free agent Chandler Parsons.

The Lakers view Parsons as more of a backup plan if they miss out on Carmelo Anthony, but a trio of Kobe Bryant, Julius Randle, and Parsons is intriguing. Parsons averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.2 steals on 47 percent shooting, and 37 percent from 3-point range last season with the Rockets. He will be courted by the Lakers, Timberwolves, Mavericks, and Bulls, but the Rockets have the option of matching any offer he signs on the open market.

Chandler Parsons is going to be a restricted free agent and could come into play as the Kevin Love saga continues to unfold over the next few days.

The Rockets, Lakers, Timberwolves, Mavericks and Bulls are all possible landing spots for Parsons, who is one of the most underpaid players in the league. If the T-Wolves don't trade Love and get Klay Thompson back, they could try to trade Love to the Rockets in a deal that would bring back Parsons. The Lakers, Mavs and Bulls could also make a strong play for Parsons if they fail to land Carmelo Anthony. Any way you slice it, Parsons is about to get paid.
Jun 29 - 1:57 AM

The Rockets have officially declined the fourth-year team option on Chandler Parsons.

He is now a restricted free agent. It's not really a big surprise to see the Rockets decline the team option because now they'll have a little more roster flexibility when free agency starts next month. Parsons said the chances he's back with the Rockets are "really good," and we think he'll likely be back unless they go through a major overhaul of their roster. He'd be an early-mid round pick in fantasy leagues as it stands right now.
Jun 28 - 1:53 PM

Chandler Parsons said on Saturday that he wants to remain in Houston and he thinks the Rockets have a chance to be "really good."

"I've worked my entire life to be in this situation. Everything will work itself out," Parsons said. "I want to be here. I love Houston. It's a great situation for me." The Rockets plan to decline the fourth-year option on Parsons to make him a restricted free agent, but they're more than likely going to match any offer. Parsons has been one of the more pleasant surprises in the past couple years and has really maximized his fantasy value in the Rockets stat-friendly system.
Jun 7 - 5:18 PM

The Rockets plan to decline Chandler Parsons' fourth-year contract option, allowing him to enter restricted free agency this summer.

Parsons would earn $965k next season, a pittance relative to his production, and the Rockets' are making a calculated decision. They're likely to match any offer for their starting SF, who notched multiple career-highs in his third NBA season with 16.6 points, 1.8 threes, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Jun 4 - 9:53 AM

Chandler Parsons may end up being a free agent this summer, but prefers to stay in Houston.

Parsons could wind up being a restricted free agent this summer if the Rockets decline to pick up his team option for 2014-15, but the 25-year-old would prefer to stay in Houston. "Restricted, unrestricted, it doesn’t really matter to me. I just want to be in a good situation," Parsons said. "I want to be on a winning team. And I think that can happen here. I’m not trying to go anywhere else. Obviously, I have to do what’s best for my career, but I love it here." Parsons would be a steal at $964,750 next season if the Rockets pick up his team option before the June 29 deadline, but they'd also run the risk of disenchanting him to the point where he'd want to leave the team in unrestricted free agency during the summer of 2015.
