Dallas Mavericks Score Touchdown in Getting Chandler Parsons

Chandler Parsons

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like the uncertainty of whether or not the Houston Rockets would match the Dallas Mavericks‘ offer sheet for Chandler Parsons is finally over.

It really made zero sense after the Rockets signed NBA small forward Trevor Ariza to a multi-year contract for the team to also match the insane contract the Mavericks offered Parsons. Of course, the Rockets know Parson’s a good, versatile offensive player, but he and Ariza on the floor together would have been one hell of a disjunction.

It’s cool for the Mavericks though that the Rockets might now be willing to take a contract off Dallas’ hands. Perhaps Brandan Wright‘s $5 million dollar salary and a future draft pick for the upcoming season will get the Rockets to reluctantly part ways with their young, pretty boy small forward.

The Mavericks, of course, can use that money to spend on other free agents since Mavericks owner Mark Cuban‘s team is still without a legitimate starting point guard after the trade for Tyson Chandler. Parsons will be a good addition, though. Like Dirk Nowitzki, he’s a good perimeter shooter in spite of his tall height, but Parsons also can penetrate the defense like a skilled shooting guard.

Why the Rockets waited all this time to finally give in and not match Parsons remains a mystery, but the in-state rivalry between the Rockets and Mavericks probably had something to do with it.

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
