With exciting young pieces Trae Young, John Collins and Kevin Huerter already in place, Parker joins fellow newcomers Evan Turner, Chandler Parsons and draft-day acquisitions De’Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish and Bruno Fernando. “It’s never promised that things are going to go well, but just from the energy that I’m feeling, it’s a good situation for me,” Parker said. “Trae Young is someone who can not only score but distribute. John Collins is a very, very good player. “I know the expectations. I can fulfill my role accordingly. I’m young, but they’re younger. One thing I take pride in is I’ve now been every player — from the first to last guy on the team. And I’m grateful for those experiences.”
The Atlanta Hawks have acquired veteran forward Chandler Parsons from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Solomon Hill and Miles Plumlee, it was announced today. Parsons has played in 435 career regular season games (369 starts) in eight seasons with Houston, Dallas and Memphis, averaging 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 30.3 minutes (.462 FG%, .373 3FG%, .713 FT%). In 13 playoff starts (with the Rockets and Mavericks), he’s averaged 18.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 40.4 minutes (.437 FG%, .363 3FG%, .690 FT%).
Memphis was unable to agree a contract buyout number with Parsons, so the Grizzlies chose the trade with Atlanta that allows for two smaller expiring salaries in Hill and Miles Plumlee that might be easier to move in a deal. The Hawks were able to create a roster opening in the deal. The Hawks are building around young players, but are open to giving Parsons an opportunity to earn a role in his final year under contract. If another team shows interest in signing him, a contract buyout always remains a possibility.
