Parsons said that until he signed the offer sheet and was told the Rockets were unsure, he thought they'd match and he'd return to Houston.
In talking to Chandler Parsons he was surprised there was backlash to his comments. Did not back off, but also cited that he praised Morey.
Boy, that escalated quickly. That really got out of hand fast.
More than that, that confidence and swagger had a lot to do with Rockets play vs. top teams. The 2nd round chip on shoulder helped them.
Parsons' comments might help some Hou fans move on, but same thing that makes him "offended" and worthy '3rd star' made him excel for 3 yrs.
One home run to make the finals. No more Giancarlo. Sigh...
Rockets announce signing of Troy Daniels. Ariza sign-and-trade, three-team deal to become official tomorrow.
Troy Daniels' deal with the Rockets will be for two years, source said.
Daniels was a restricted free agent who excelled in the D-League before giving Rockets a needed boost in playoffs, including a game-winner.
Rockets finalizing a deal to sign guard Troy Daniels today, a source said.
Morey: "You have to be the one to find the Chandler Parsons, not the one that gives the Chandler Parsons the max contracts."
Morey: "I feel by the time we get to the playoffs this year, we'll be a much better squad (than last year)."
Morey confirmed that the Jeremy Lin trade had nothing to do w/ Bosh. Laker offer was about to go off the table bc of moves they had to make.
Summer Blazers pull away in final two minutes to beat the Summer Rockets, 75-67. Nick Johnson led the Rockets with 16.
Andre Dawkins has got the Vipers game plan down -- see it, 3 it. He hit a few, but missing now.
Whenever u meet someone who is always talking about the next man/woman, 9 times outta 10 they are doing the same behind your back!
Down 11 at halftime, Summer Rockets lead 61-54. And the crowd goes mild.
I decided to look up for awhile and Summer Rockets went on an 18-0 run. Andre Dawkins with some 3s. Covington hit one. Johnson finished.
Those wishing to move hopes to next free agent on Rockets wish list would be better off looking to 2015 than 'big' names left this summer.
Painful as it had to have been, was logic in Hou decision not to match. But to think, 3 days ago, they thought they'd have Bosh and Parsons.
Houston will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget the memories. My teammates, I love you, thank you.
By the way, today marks one year to the day since the Rockets officially signed Dwight Howard.
This of course puts huge pressure on using cap room, Pels picks trade exception for Rockets to find that third piece.
Still, if Rockets had landed Bosh, they absolutely would have kept Parsons, believing they would not have had to worry about building.
Keeping flexibility to build was by far biggest factor in Rockets decision, but they also believed they needed Ariza's defense.
The decision largely came down to whether the Rockets were good enough with a big three of Harden, Howard and Parsons.
Rockets were torn over decision, source said, but ultimately decided they would not be a championship team and would have no room to build.
The Rockets will not match the offer sheet to keep Chandler Parsons, per source.
What a game, what a win ,what a goal ! Germany!!!
Champions of the world!!!
Brock Holt was 10-for-16 in the 3-game series against the Astros.

Brock Holt. 5 hits today.

12 K's through 8 innings for Buchholz. I'm pretty sure the Red Sox will let him try to finish this one out.
Bucholz is just dealing. 95 pitches so far in the eighth inning. Just got his 11th K. No walks.
Bases-loaded walk to Big Papi makes it 8-0 Sox. Veras has thrown 8 of his 11 pitches so far for balls.
Let's go Germany! http://t.co/mYAfHF8uRc
