Dwight Howard will become a member of the Houston Rockets organization on July 10, when the 2013-14 NBA season’s salary cap is officially set. While many have criticized the Los Angeles Lakers for their methodology in recruiting Howard to remain with the club, little has been said about the Rockets’ unique approach at persuading Dwight to head to Houston. A key part of that process was 24-year-old NBA forward Chandler Parsons. “Chandler was relentless,” explained a source close to the situation to FORBES. ”[Chandler] called and texted [Dwight] every day, even face-timed and would answer every question Dwight could potentially have. We would drive to his house in the hills and talk to him. Basically Chandler Parsons recruited him like Nick Saban and a 5-star defensive tackle; they hardly knew each other at beginning of process.” Forbes.com

“I talk to Dwight every day,” Parsons said. “I’ve created a relationship with him, where I feel like we’re very close. He hits me up about everything. I’ve covered pretty much every question he’s had. I basically tell him, ‘We have a chance to be really good without you next year. We’re going to have a good season. Why not come and join us, join our core guys who are for sure to be here and make us great, make us contend for a championship?’ Houston Chronicle

Texans standout and all-around good-guy J.J. Watt received so many prom requests that he decided to post a statement on his Facebook page announcing he wouldn’t be going to the dance with anyone because he couldn’t go with everyone. Rockets forward Chandler Parsons is the latest pro to get a prom invite, though likely not the last. Parsons wasn’t able to attend the high school event, though he did send fan Stephanie Flores and her friends to the prom in style. Houston Chronicle
