Chandler Parsons said he isn't feeling any extra pressure after signing a big free agent contract with the Dallas Mavericks during the offseason.
Asked if he was feeling any added pressure to live up to his 3-year, $46 million contract, Parsons said, "Not at all. I was underpaid my first three years and that didn’t affect how I played. People are going to talk about my contract now just because it’s a huge raise, but it really doesn’t matter to me. I’m a basketball player and I’m going to continue to get better and do what I do regardless of how much money I’m making." Parsons averaged 16.6 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.2 steals with the Rockets last season, and should have no problem returning value as a early-to-middle round fantasy selection in 2014-15.

Mark Cuban said that Chandler Parsons told him that he wants to be a "cornerstone for the Dallas Mavericks."

"You know, what [Parsons] said to me is that he wants to come in and have a phenomenal season and prove to everybody that he’s worth every penny," Cuban said. "He wants to be a cornerstone for the Dallas Mavericks. That’s where his head’s at." Fresh off signing a three-year, $46 million deal with Dallas (a substantial increase from his previous contract of four-years, $3.6 million) Parsons will look to establish himself as a top-tier, big-money talent in the league. Parsons is a guy that can offer across-the-board production as he averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers with the Rockets last season, and he figures to be an early-middle round selection going into this year's drafts.

Mark Cuban is confident that Chandler Parsons won't slack off now that he's landed a three-year, $46 million contract.

"I think in Chandler’s case in talking to him, he wants to prove that he’s worth it," Cuban said. "He’s working his butt off to do it ... It’s not like he was only good for one or two years, he was good for three years [with the Rockets]." Parsons is in a great position as the Mavericks' starting SF, taking some scoring pressure off Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis, and his reliable all-around game makes him a safe pick in the early-middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Chandler Parsons did not make Team USA for the FIBA World Cup in Spain later this month.

While the team does need some wings, Parsons had one of the worst months of any player in scoring the ball and didn't really do anything to separate himself. This is probably good news for Mavericks fans because he'll have some extra time to build some rapport with his new team. His fantasy value may have taken a minor hit since he's not in the perfect system like he was in Houston, but he's still a player worth targeting in the early-middle rounds for standard leagues.

President of USA Basketball Jerry Colangelo said he sees Chandler Parsons and Paul George as possible stretch fours for the FIBA World Cup in Spain.

The team is really going to be shorthanded after losing out on Blake Griffin and Kevin Love. Small ball has been prevalent in the NBA these days and the national team will utilize a similar strategy. Parsons has a great chance to make the team now and Mavericks fans could get a longer look at the former Rocket.

Chandler Parsons was added to the Team USA camp roster.

It's been a busy month for Parsons and he's now moved north to join the Dallas Mavericks. Parsons' uptempo style and perimeter game makes him a candidate to make the team, which is saying something for the former second-round draft pick.

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.

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.
