The Dallas Mavericks have had their hands in a lot of different areas in the NBA offseason. Arguably their biggest move, though, was to lure restricted free agent Chandler Parsons away from the Rockets with a big three-year deal. These are five ways that the Parsons acquisition is a step in the right direction for Dallas.

Though the Mavericks have been adding talent over the past couple of seasons, they haven’t had a young guy that they can really hang their hats on recently. At just 25 years old, Parsons certainly gives the Mavs that type of player.

It may seem silly, but the man known by many as “Handsome” Chandler Parsons will help to put more fans in the seats in Dallas. More importantly, those fans may start to have a higher female demographic.

While Parsons has had veterans around him while with the Rockets, he’s never really played around guys with championship pedigrees. Under head coach Rick Carlisle and playing with Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler, Parsons will be able to learn and grow as a player.

Though it’s hard for defense to shine through in Houston, Parsons has a load of potential on that end of the floor. He’s quick, extremely long, and has solid instincts. With the chance to grow further as a player, Parsons could add more defense to a Mavs team that needs just that.

Of course, Dallas’ greatest weapon last season was their ability to score the basketball and Parsons fits right into that. Parsons gives the Mavs a versatile guy on the wing that can score from almost anywhere on the floor and can also get out and run with the guards. He’ll be a fantastic weapon for this team in that regard.
