Parsons’ days of averaging 36 minutes per game — like he did for a two-season stretch with the Rockets from 2012-2014 — are over. But he is still envisioning a productive 2019-20 season for himself as he enters the final season of his contract. “I’m going to continue to do all the right things this summer and put myself in the best situation to play a lot of games next year,” Parsons said. “Where that will be, I don’t know. You’ve got to ask the guys upstairs. But I’m fully committed to the team and coming back, if that’s what it’s going to be.”

However, Heat reporter Ira Winderman suggested that Miami should be looking at their long-term future, saying that instead of chasing a star, the team should trade for cap space. I think the Heat will be willing to trade players for future cap space. I’ll give you one, trade for Chandler Parsons, not to play him, but he only has two years left on his deal. If you make a deal like that, James Johnson, three years left. Kelly Olynyk, three years left. Dion [Waiters] three years left. You could have more money for 2020 free agency. So instead of flipping them for a star, I could see by the trade deadline, the Heat flipping some of those contracts for salary cap space.

Parsons — who is guaranteed $38 million in salary through the 2019-20 season — left the Grizzlies on Sunday to continue working out on his own in California. The Grizzlies and Parsons couldn’t agree on a G League assignment plan that would assure Parsons of his return to the active NBA roster this season. The sides will work to find a trade for Parsons, sources said.

The Dallas Mavericks and the Memphis Grizzlies have, sources tell me, talked about trade concepts that would sent the No. 4 overall pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft from Memphis to Dallas, with Chandler Parsons as the “salary dump” included in the swap. The Grizzlies began last weekend in the preliminary stages of shopping the idea, as first noted here, with DallasBasketball.com breaking the story on Dallas’ willingness in “taking on money in exchange for a top-10 pick,” as a source put it to us last Thursday.

On Wednesday, Fox Sports 1 host Skip Bayless repeated a false claim tweeted by a parody account stating that NBA star James Harden stormed out of several Houston Rockets practices in tears after his teammate Chris Paul mocked his “manboobs.” With Harden and Paul’s “unsalvageable” relationship being the focus of sports media this week, a parody Twitter account posing as ESPN’s top NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski wrote that sources say Paul had insulted Harden’s figure.
