The Dallas Mavericks failed to land one of the “big fish” free agents again this summer, but they did land a young potential superstar in Chandler Parsons. With Parsons they might have signed a player who brings something to the table off the court, an ability to recruit free agents.
Parsons was instrumental in bringing Dwight Howard to the Houston Rockets last summer, and he is willing to help the Mavericks and owner Mark Cuban bring in free agents in the future.
“I’m the best recruiter in the NBA,” Parsons said, via Yahoo Sports. “Whatever Mark and the Mavericks need, they got me to do that.”
Parsons thinks Dallas is the perfect spot for him and did a little praising of the organization, maybe in case any future free agents are paying attention.
“Dallas is the perfect match to where I am in my career,” Parsons said. “It’s where I can take that next step. They have a great organization. Mark is the best owner in all of sports. I get a chance to play with Dirk for however much longer he has. It will be unbelievable to learn and grown from him and the guys they have.
“We got a chance to win. Coach [Rick] Carlisle is the best coach in the NBA. It’s the perfect situation for me. I’m ready for more leadership. I’m ready for a bigger role. They came at me with a high max offer and viewed me as a franchise player. That’s what I wanted.”
