Carlisle believes the increased weight has created conditioning issues for Parsons, who had nine points on 4-of-12 shooting, six rebounds and six assists in 20 minutes during Friday night's preseason loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. "He looked tired out there tonight to me, and his shot is short," Carlisle said. "He's working on losing some weight. He's a little bit heavier than he's been. He's up over 230, and we want to see him get down to at least 225. That's a work in progress, and tonight's one of those nights where I think the extra weight was a hindrance." ESPN.com

"An increase of 18 to 20 pounds is just too much," Carlisle said. "We talked about it today. We talk about it a lot. He'll get there. He'll get there, but he looked tired out there and a little heavy-legged, and the extra 7 or 8 pounds aren't helping. "I don't mean to call him out in public or ridicule him, but it's just a fact. He's an important guy for us. We just need him to get to his right conditioning and weight level so he can play his best, because we're going to need him to play a lot of minutes over the course of 82 games." ESPN.com

Before Friday night’s game, Durant and Tyson Chandler met at center court for a lengthy embrace and conversation. The two won the gold medal together at the 2012 Olympics and seem to share some genuine mutual respect. Oklahoman

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant strongly dismissed Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's suggestion that the NBA consider eliminating the maximum restrictions on contracts in exchange for players giving up guaranteed money. "I don't think that makes sense," Durant said Friday. "Give up guarantees? Nah, I don't think so. Why? Why would we do that? Just because we asked for ... I'm not going to talk about this, man." Durant said he had a lot to say on the subject, but said it wasn't the appropriate time for him to express those thoughts publicly. ESPN.com

By the weekend of July 11, both sides had verbally committed to a two-year contract worth slightly more than Stephenson's eventual deal with the Hornets, according to Ebanks. But Dallas was in a holding pattern; the Houston Rockets first had to match Chandler Parsons' Mavericks offer, or it wouldn't happen. "It was a domino effect," Ebanks said. "Dallas did not think that Houston was going to let Parsons walk. Lance was very close to being a member of the Mavericks. When you're a little further along into free agency, people are more in the position to pull the trigger when they see what they're looking for." CBSSports.com
