Chandler Parsons blew up for 24 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in just 25 minutes vs. the Magic on Friday.
He scored 15 points in an explosive third quarter and would have had a bigger night if the Mavs didn't have a convincing lead in the exhibition. Head coach Rick Carlisle criticized Parsons for being a few pounds above his ideal weight earlier in the preseason, but he's fit and ready for a big season in a featured offensive role with the Mavs. Oct 24 - 9:46 PM

Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons, Tyson Chandler, Monta Ellis, Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson and Brandan Wright are all sitting out against the Pelicans on Thursday.

Hopefully, Pelicans owner Tom Benson doesn't grab the microphone and apologize to fans while wearing a chicken suit.

Chandler Parsons was great for the Mavs on Monday with 11 points, four boards, five assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

The dimes have really been a big part of his game and he's averaged 4.3 per game over his last four. Of course, Parsons averaged 4.0 per game last year, so this isn't a surprise. His production on the stat sheet is basically made for fantasy, so he shouldn't slip beyond the fourth round.

Chandler Parsons (rest) is out for Saturday's exhibition game.

He is going to get some extra rest on Saturday after he finally started to turn it on during the preseason. He is a solid pick in the early-middle rounds as he will see plenty of minutes for an aging Dallas team.

Chandler Parsons' form is finally rounding into shape as the small forward had his best game of the preseason on Friday, posting 19 points, five boards, four assists, and two 3-pointers against Cleveland.

Parsons was criticized by head coach Rick Carlisle for coming into training camp slightly overweight but Parsons and Carlisle have since buried the hatchet and the Mavericks' big off-season signing is starting to fit right in. Parsons should be just as useful as he was last year from a fantasy perspective.

Two days after coach Rick Carlisle criticized his weight and conditioning, Chandler Parsons finished Sunday's exhibition with 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists and three steals.

Carlisle publicly apologized for telling reporters that Parsons needed to lose 6-8 pounds, and the incident will have zero impact on his on-court performance. It's particularly nice to see Parsons getting after it defensively -- he had four combined steals and blocks in just six games last season, but he racked up three steals and one block in only 28 minutes tonight.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle apologized for criticizing Chandler Parsons after Friday's game, saying that he set a "bad example ... beneath the dignity of a championship organization."

Carlisle said that Parsons needs to lose more weight to effectively play PF this season. It's a rocky start to Parsons' tenure in Dallas after signing a three-year, $46 million deal this summer, but should be water under the bridge once the regular season begins.

According to head coach Rick Carlisle, Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons needs to lose some weight in order to play more power forward this season.

Parsons reportedly showed up at camp weighting 235lbs but Carlisle would like him to be closer to 225lbs. Parsons commented, "At the end of the day, I respect his opinion. After training camp, my weight fluctuates. I'll get it down." Parsons looked a bit sluggish on Friday, as he shot just 4-of-12 during a preseason game against the Thunder.

Chandler Parsons made 4-of-12 from the field for nine points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer on Friday.

It's tough to get a read on his role with Dirk Nowitzki (hip) and Monta Ellis (knee) out tonight, but this game against the Thunder wasn't a negative. Parsons should be heavily involved on offense and is worth a look in the early middle rounds.
Oct 11 - 12:35 AM

Chandler Parsons made his Mavericks debut on Tuesday against his former team (Houston) and had 14 points, one rebound, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

He hit just 3-of-7 shots, but looked good against his old mates. We'll have to see how he gels with Dirk Nowitzki, who was out tonight, and Monta Ellis, but all signs are pointing to more good stuff from Parsons this season.
Oct 8 - 2:23 AM

Chandler Parsons admitted that it will be "weird" playing against Houston during Dallas' preseason opener on Tuesday.

"It’s going to be a weird feeling," Parsons said. "It’s definitely going to be awkward... Even though it’s a preseason game and Dirk [Nowitzki is] not playing and the rotation is not going to be regular-season game like, it will still be exciting. It will still be competitive. It’s not like it will be Nov. 22 in Houston, but it’s good to get it out of the way. It will be fun." Parsons is a guy capable of offering across-the-board statistics to a fantasy squad, and he's worthy of a top-50 selection on draft day.
Oct 6 - 5:40 PM

Rick Carlisle called out Chandler Parsons conditioning after Thursday's practice.

When asked if Parsons bulked up this offseason in order to play some power forward behind Dirk this season, Carlisle replied, "One man’s bulking up is another man’s not quite in shape yet." It was a subtle shot at his new small forward, but he also went on to say that he expects Parsons to be in shape soon, and that not working out during his free agency period contributed to his lack of conditioning.
Oct 2 - 3:33 PM

Chandler Parsons said that Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle has been pushing him to be a better player during training camp.

"He’s persistent, man," Parsons said. "He’s all over me." After signing a big free agent deal with the Mavericks this summer, Parsons is being held to a high standard by his new coach. "We’re working on all aspects of his game," Carlisle said. "He’s a very good all-around player who has a lot of capacity to improve." The Mavs have a lot of mouths to feed, but Parsons should have no problem putting up all-around numbers that warrant a top-50 fantasy selection.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle took a dig at Chandler Parsons' offseason conditioning, saying, "One man’s bulking up is another man’s not quite in shape yet."

Carlisle was at least half-kidding and he might use Parsons as a backup PF for stretches, in addition to his starting SF job, so a bit of bulk may be a good thing. The Mavs have enough depth that owner Mark Cuban doesn't expect anyone (including Dirk Nowitzki) to average 20 points per game this season, but Parsons' versatility makes him a safe fantasy pick in the 35-50 range.
Oct 1 - 10:31 AM

Chandler Parsons said he bulked up in an effort to play some power forward for the Mavs this season.

He played a lot of stretch four in Houston, so it's not a surprise. "I just think strength was the biggest [challenge] for me," Parsons said. "Offensively, it’s just as tough for them guarding me when I take it out, pick-and-pop and do stuff like that." He is likely going to be a big part of the offense, but the Houston system was almost tailor made for his style. Still, Parsons is worth a look in the early-middle rounds.
