It's good to hear @Chandler Parsons say he's ready for a larger role with the Mavs. Also, he sees himself as a point forward.

Dwain Price

"I love the core we have here. With Tyson and Monta and Dirk, I think we have a chance to do some special things here.'' -- Chandler Parsons

Dwain Price

Chandler Parsons on Dirk: "He's such a smart player. He's an unbelievable shooter. He's just a student of the game.''

Dwain Price

Chandler Parsonson Dirk taking a huge pay cut to get him: "That just shows what kind of guy he is. Dirk is a true professional.''

Dwain Price

In essence, if Mo Williams gives the #Mavs a Dirk-like discount, he could be on their roster as we speak.

Earl K. Sneed

Conference call with new @Dallas Mavericks SF @Chandler Parsons on deck. Quotes forthcoming...

Dwain Price

In other words, it looks like the #Mavs are going to be hard-pressed to get either Mo Williams or Shawn Marion. They're low on funds.

Dwain Price

Donnie Nelson on Mo Williams: "He's got a lot of offers out there. . .I don't know if we're going to be in a position to compete there.''

Dwain Price

#Mavs prez of basketball ops Donnie Nelson calls it "a long shot'' as far as Dallas being able to re-sign FA small forward Shawn Marion.

Dwain Price

Dirk will be the 4th-highest paid player on the #Mavs behind Tyson, Parsons and Ellis. What other superstar does that? #kobe #melo

Dwain Price

#Mavs prez of basketball ops Donnie Nelson said they don't have any money to make a play for Carlos Boozer, who was amnestied today by CHI.

Jeff Caplan

Mavs fans still love this dude Delonte. Playing for Clips. http://t.co/t3wedBa7ee

What took so long? MT @SportsDayDFW: Texas looks to shut down Prime Prep, school founded by Deion Sanders... d-news.co/zcBeb

Jeff Caplan

Looks like Kevin McHale is about to hop on @NBATV.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs officially signed restricted free agent small forward Chandler Parsons to a three-year, $46 million contract today.

Dwain Price

Since Carlos Boozer was amnestied today and is due $16.8 million by the #Bulls next yr., someone is going to get him at a major bargain.

Dwain Price

The #Bulls released Carlos Boozer via the amnesty provision. The #Mavs may make a run at him. Boozer is due $16.8 mill next yr by the Bulls.

Dwain Price

Monta Ellis (Lanier HS) and Mo Williams (Murrah HS) are both from Jackson, Mississippi. Now wouldn't that be a nice reunion if. . .

Coming to you LIVE from @Dallas Mavericks summer-league practice in Las Vegas... #MavsSL14 http://t.co/Id5NZZUmNe

Dwain Price

If the #Mavs get Mo Williams and Shawn Marion, then save the other roster spot for a "steal'' later this summer, would that make you happy?

Dwain Price

Dirk made $22.7 mill last yr. This year he'll make a little over $8 mill. Marion made $9.3 mill last yr. This year he'll make. . .

Dwain Price

Shawn Marion, when asked if the #Mavs can win another title with him on the roster: "I'm not really thinking about that too much right now."

Jeff Caplan

Dirk takes even bigger pay cut than 1st thought as @Marc Stein reports deal is 3yrs-$25M. Initially believed was the Duncan deal 3-$30M.

Bernard James

“You don’t got the answers Sway!” I literally laugh out loud everytime I think about that interview.

Jeff Caplan

Terry Stotts on L.A. wanting to stay w Port: "When you have an All-Pro player who’s committed to the franchise that makes everybody happy."

Dwain Price

Another reason stars should come play with Dirk. He's taking less money so you can get more money. And he doesn't mind if you're the star.

Mark Followill

Dirk, he's the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be

Dwain Price

#Mavs make it official and sign Dirk Nowitzki to a 3-year, $30 million contract.

Earl K. Sneed

I'm waiting for the Dirk "I never left" memes to surface...

Earl K. Sneed

Per @MavsPR, the @Dallas Mavericks officially announce the re-signing of 12-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki.

Dwain Price

That new Derek Jeter Nike ad is off the chain. #RE2PECT #tipyourhat

Dwain Price

I just got off the phone with Shawn Marion and he said he's enjoying his baby son and is not thinking about retirement.

Earl K. Sneed

There's a mass Mavs contingent in Vegas. A lot to discuss, I'm sure. Mavs still plan to make a couple more additions in the coming days.

Dwain Price

Shawn Marion says he's not thinking about free agency now, but is enjoying his 1st born -- a son who will be 3 months old on Thursday.

Dwain Price

Mavs free agent Shawn Marion on the #Mavs acquiring RFA Chandler Parsons from the Houston Rockets: "Chandler Parsons is a great addition.''

Dwain Price

Will young Chandler -- Parsons, not Tyson -- be able to attract young stars to play for the #Mavs? It will depend on how he plays next yr.

Earl K. Sneed

Remaining free agents are holding out for the best offer, instead of minimum-salary deals. Mavs still have $2.7 million room exception.

Dwain Price

"Mo (Williams) is just one of our favorites and certainly the kind of guy that we’d love to have in our locker room.'' -- Donnie Nelson

Dwain Price

Free agent SF Shawn Marion said he's getting over 150 tweets a day from #Mavs fans asking him about returning to play for the Mavs.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs needed an eraser? Tyson Chandler. Check. They needed a scoring SF? Chandler Parsons. Check. Next on the list are backups at PG/PF.

Dwain Price

Of the 19 players vying for 12 spots on the USA Basketball team, Chandler Parsons and DeMar DeRozan are da lone newcomers to USA Basketball.

Greg Smith

I got family to feed!!!

Dwain Price

The mystery of free agency? Why isn't/didn't any of the contending teams pour at least MLE dough at Shawn Marion? He can still play.

Dwain Price

While he's working out to make the USA Basketball team, Parsons could also be a recruiter for the #Mavs who can lure upcoming free agents.

Breakdown of Carter's new 3-yr, $12.2 mill contract with MEPH -- $3.9 mill, $4.1 mill, $4.2 mill. Only $2 mill of the last yr is guaranteed.

Jeff Caplan

Easiest way to make HR Derby tolerable: 3 guys a side, that's it.

Dwain Price

Still don't know why #Rockets GM Daryl Morey said Parsons' contract is one of the most "untradeable'' ones he's ever seen. #Mavs don't care.

Inside Recap: @Dallas Mavericks improve to 2-1 in summer-league play with rout over Raptors mavs.com/summer-league-… #MavsSL14

Greg Smith

I'm just trying get better every day

Dwain Price

The #Mavs really want Dirk to be their 2nd-best player. Will Parsons be their best player this season? Or will it be Monta? Or Dirk?

Dwain Price

It's about time for Ricky Ledo to take the next step and become a viable contributor for the #Mavs. The kid has a lot of raw talent.

Dwain Price

#Mavs officially acquire F Greg Smith from the #Bulls today for the rights to F Tadija Dragicevic.

Earl K. Sneed

Crowd loves it when Ivan Johnson swishes a 3. Rick Carlisle seems to be determined to expand Johnson's game. #MavsSL14

Earl K. Sneed

12 pts now from Eric Griffin. I think he likes having Mr. Cuban in the crowd. #MavsSL14

Earl K. Sneed

Pretty bounce pass from Ricky Ledo to Ivan Johnson, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 30-19 with 7:01 left in the half. #MavsSL14

Earl K. Sneed

Eric Griffin...two-handed...jam. Stop me if you've read this tweet before. #MavsSL14

Remember Andrei Kirilenko, known for filling the stat sheet with pts, reb., assists, blks and steals for the #Jazz? That's Chandler Parsons.

Earl K. Sneed

Meanwhile, the @Dallas Mavericks trail 8-5 early to Toronto with 5:51 left in the 1st. #MavsSL14
