Will Rockets Match Mavericks Offer For Chandler Parson

By Rami Michail

The Dallas Mavericks agreed to terms with restricted free agent Chandler Parsons yesterday on a 3-year, $46 million deal.

With the Rockets having 72-hours to match, Mark Cuban even met Parsons at a night club to get the deal signed and the clock ticking. Or that’s what we thought was the case.

With teams now able to officially ink deals, Don Nelson met with the press today and revealed the team has yet to submit the offer sheet to the league.

With every second going against the Mavericks, it was obviously shocking that the team has yet to put the pressure on Daryl Morey and the Rockets. After all, the Rockets are in a holding pattern, as they are waiting on LeBron James and Chris Bosh to decide their futures.

One reason for the Mavs lack of urgency could be to work out a possible sign-and-trade. Once the offer is submitted, a trade is no longer possible due to CBA rules. Shawn Marion, Vince Carter, Brandan Wright and Jae Crowder could interest the Rockets.
