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%).
The New Orleans Pelicans today completed a trade with the Atlanta Hawks, acquiring the draft rights to the eighth overall pick in 2019 NBA Draft, Jaxson Hayes, 17th pick Nickeil Alexander-Walker, and 35th pick Marcos Louzada Silva. In exchange, New Orleans has traded the draft rights to the fourth overall pick, De’Andre Hunter and the 57th overall pick, Jordan Bone, to Atlanta, as well as forward Solomon Hill and a future second-round draft pick.
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.
