The Rockets absolutely want to land Chris Bosh. Who could blame them? Bosh still has a lot left in the tank and he is a perfect fit for what the team runs. Parsons is a very talented player and also fits into Houston’s system really well, but it is what it is.
Dallas could really use another player to help it compete for another title. Parsons very well could be that guy. The Mavericks and Parsons have already agreed to a deal, but Houston has time to match that deal.
In pursuit of Bosh, the Rockets would like to have as much time as possible before making a decision on Parsons. If LeBron James decides to take his wonderful talents to Cleveland, then Bosh will more than likely join the Rockets.
With that said, working out a sign-and-trade would provide Houston the time it needs, while also setting up a deal for the Mavericks to land their man.
If it all works out according to plan, both teams will gain a very talented player, and both teams will compete for a title in the 2014-15 season. So, you could definitely say that this is a win-win for both Dallas and Houston.
