    Maybe after we land Kevin Love and KD, we can also try to get Parson as well. I have my trust on MU ... He is the guy who got us 2Pat after all.

    So Parsons stays in houston unless the owner doesn't want him in Houston, efforts & thoughts should be focused elsewhere.
    While I like Chandler Parsons a lot I do think you are right on your points re acquisition. There is another SF Chandler who would be a very good fit as well imo...Wilson Chandler of the Nuggets.

    Probably a better fit than Parsons for the Raps. Parsons isn't the answer for the Raps. What can he bring to the table that's so much more appealing than what Ross provides? He has more length perhaps, or height at least, but I doubt it would help him defend SF's better than Ross. Offensively, Ross has the tools to be just as effective as Parsons, and I would say even more diversified. I don't think Parsons moves the needle enough for the money he may have to be paid.

    Parsons' passing is a gift. Ross doesn't have it. Parsons is a very smart player. I think offensively he fits the team very well. I'd love to have him, despite his subpar defense.

    Another one by Zach Lowe about the domino game that Parson's option getting turned down was part of. Friggin Houston, man.

    I still think that we should help facilitate Asik/Lin off the Books, or Boozer.

    Or hell, all 3 if it's somehow humanely possible, lol.

    Would MLSE pay the Tax for 1-Year, take on shitty contracts, for some draft picks?

    That way we can watch Chicago and Houston bid against each other, haha.

    He can play much better defense, we know it because he did play much better defense during his rookie year. His defense seems to decline every year so far. Maybe he just doesn't have the conditioning or mindset to play a big role on both ends on such a high pace team. He often looks like the worst defender on the Rockets lineup. He may not get much negative attention because Harden is such an easy target, Harden is an all star and a max player while Parsons is a minimum salary player, but Parsons is often worse than Harden. He looked much better (defensively) during his rookie year.

    He does have solid tools, I think. I think he has good quickness, and based on predraft numbers his wingspan is the same as Landry Fields'. He may not have Paul George caliber physical tools, but he has no excuse for not being pretty good.
    this, basically.

    mentally, he just doesn't seem to concentrate very hard on defense. then again, i can't remember a Mchale coached team that did.

    Haha I thought the exact same thing.

    Chandelier Parsons: a really bright player offensively but just kind of hangs out on the defensive end.
