HoopsHype Chandler Parsons rumors

July 14, 2014 Updates

Either the Houston Rockets or the Dallas Mavericks were going to pay him $46 million over the next three years, and with the Rockets choosing not to match the Maverick's offer sheet, Parsons will be earning his living in Dallas. The Rockets' deadline to match the offer sheet was 11 p.m. on Sunday. "It's been crazy," Parsons said in an interview with FOX26 Sports from Los Angeles. "Obviously, when I signed that offer sheet with Dallas it was exciting. It was an unbelievable deal for me and my family. "It's a perfect situation for me. At that point it was win-win for me, whether going to Dallas or coming back to Houston." FOX 26 Sports

However, Beverley also said next season when the Rockets play the Mavericks, he will treat Parsons like every other opponent. Beverley said "he probably won't say a word to him in the game." Parsons laughed and said he understood completely. "That's how it is," Parsons said. "When that ball goes up the friendships go out the door. That's the name of game. That happens all across the NBA. I have multiple friends on different teams. "It will be a weird feeling playing Houston next year." FOX 26 Sports

Mark Berman: Pat Beverley: "I spoke to (Chandler) that day he signed the offer sheet with Dallas. He was hyped. I spoke to him at 5:30 this morning (in Taiwan) and he told me they are not going to match. Of course it's tough. I'm human. Chandler is like a brother to me. Me and Chandler were like the glue that kept it together. It's time 4me to step up 2the plate, provide more offensively and defensively to help our team. I'm confident. I think Dwight's confident. I think James is confident that we'll get some key pieces and try to make a run at this" Twitter @MarkBermanFox26

Chandler Parsons: Just heard from @dmorey and Mr. Alexander. Nothing but utmost respect for them, the fans and city of Houston. THANK YOU for your support! Twitter @ChandlerParsons
