The crazy anecdotes of NBA free agency have become intertwined with a new spin and it involves Chandler Parsons.
Parsons is reportedly to get an offer sheet from the Dallas Mavericks.
After it being relatively quiet in regard to what teams were pursuing Parsons, the Mavericks have a emerged as the frontrunner vying for his services.
The Houston Rockets previously decided to not offer Parsons a fourth-year option worth about $1 million next season, automatically making him a Restricted Free Agent.
Yahoo’ Sports Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Mavericks are putting together an offer for the budding star:

Parsons, 25, averaged 16.6 points, 5.5 boards and four dimes while shooting 37 percent from the three-point line in 74 games this past season. Wojnarowski also reported last month that his new contact could be worth between $12 and $13 million but it remains to be seen what the Mavs plan to offer him.
It had been rumored that Parsons was to join the Minnesota Timberwolves but they have been quelled a bit because their pursuit of Klay Thompson, a dynamic four-player, hasn’t gone as they liked. The Warriors are standing pat as far as keeping him. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports tweeted a few days in regard to the T-Wolves painstaking process of plucking him from the Bay Area:
Parsons’ future with the Rockets is now dependent on if Chris Bosh, who is seriously considering a four-year maximum contract offer reportedly worth about $88 million, decides to join the Rockets.
But what if Bosh doesn’t sign with the Rockets?
Should the Rockets offer their rest of their remaining cap room to Parsons?
I don’t think that would be the wisest financial decision but it would be one of loyalty for all of what he has done for the Rockets so far.
Believe me, I wouldn’t be upset but would have more of a feeling of shock if the Rockets made such a move.
This is the first of the many chronicles we will hear in regard to Parsons’ fate with the Rockets. We should know within the next couple of days how this all plays out.
Will he sign that sheet? We shall see…
