Do you think the Mavs surprised Houston with the size of the contract? Parsons: Yeah, I think so. I think it surprised a lot of people. NBA.com: Did it surprise you? Parsons: It didn’t surprise me. I believe in myself. I’m going to continue to work and motivate and just be a leader and do whatever I can to help this team win games and compete for a championship. I’m obviously flattered and humbled by the contract, but now it’s time to go out there and win games. NBA.com

Parsons went into restricted free agency this offseason after playing three years with the Rockets. The Mavericks signed him to a three-year offer sheet worth $45 million that Houston had the right to match. Parsons said the offer's size probably surprised the Rockets. "They pretty much told me, 'Go get the biggest deal and the best deal for you and we're matching,' " Parsons said after throwing out his first pitch. "At the end of the day it's a business and I have no hard feelings against them." Dallas Morning News

What did you see out of Derrick Rose when you were working out? Patrick Beverley: He's super strong. That's the first thing I seen with him. He's super strong, he put on some good weight. I think the day I seen him and I seen how big he was, I think the same night I went to go lift weights ‘cause I thought, you know, I saw how big he was. Just his strength, his explosiveness, the way he moves off pick-and-roll and how hard he works in the weight room. So it's a Chicago family, man. Me, him, Will Bynum, Tony Allen, we're all real close and working with each other has been a blessing this summer. CBSSports.com

James Harden scored 17 points, Stephen Curry added 14 and the unbeaten U.S. national team wrapped up pool play with a 95-71 victory over Ukraine on Thursday at the Basketball World Cup. Anthony Davis finished with 12 points for the Americans, who were still waiting out the final results from Group D in the Canary Islands to determine who they would play Saturday night in Barcelona. They would draw the fourth-place finisher in the round of 16. The Americans were never in any danger of losing in the second half after seizing control just before halftime against a methodical Ukraine team coached by former NBA coach Mike Fratello.

If Bledsoe elects to go the rare qualifying offer route, Phoenix would suddenly face the very real possibility of losing both of its two best assets without compensation in 2015 free agency. The Lakers, for example, are just one team league sources say would likely make a hard run at both of them, based on the premise that the Suns couldn't afford the cost of paying both at that point, theoretically making either Bledsoe or Dragic gettable. Sources say that Houston, furthermore, has Dragic on its list of potential targets next summer given how he's blossomed since leaving the Rockets for Phoenix in the free-agent summer of 2012.
