Default Chandler Parsons - RFA

Quote:
The Houston Rockets plan to decline the fourth-year option on forward Chandler Parsons' contract, freeing him to become a restricted free agent this summer, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Rockets hold a $960,000 option on the fourth and final year of Parsons' contract for the 2014-'15 season, but want to avoid letting Parsons, 25, become an unrestricted free agent next summer. As a restricted free agent in July, the Rockets can match an offer sheet and retain Parsons on a long-term contract.

The Rockets have until June 30 to formally decline the option.
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources...21563-nba.html

Should he be our target? A young SF who is coming off his rookie contract. Although he's still inconsistent, he'd grow nicely along with our core. I'd much rather have him than Luol Deng if we're targeting a SF.

He'll get 7-8mil on the market imo.....if we re-sign KL/GV/PP I don't think we'd have the coin to sign him.

This article on CNN says he could get 12-13 million.

I think anything 7-10mil we should take a look. I just don't think we have that money available.

On a side note: I really hope Melo goes to Houston, watching Melo and Harden chucking up 40-50 shots per game would be comical.

Parsons averages 17 5 4 on very good percentages, and plays very solid defence. He's 25 years old. If you think he's not getting at least 10 million per year you're fooling yourself. Young, good all around SFs who can fit in any system are rare. He'll get around what Batum did. If I'm Masai I'd definitely look into clearing some cap to sign him, he'd be a great fit here, and to do so we'd essentially have to try and sign Parsons on day 1 of free agency and make Houston gamble, whether they want to re-sign him or gamble on getting a star and letting him go. Parsons would be a fantastic fit here.

Wtf... if they want cap space why would they not keep him on the rookie deal this year when they need cap space and then sign him next year. Why spend 10 million of cap space instead of 1. Makes no damn sense.

Is it possible to make a trade for him and pick up the option then negotiate an extension?

Salmons, #20 for Parsons?


Houston buys out Salmons for 1mil and gets another pick to throw into a Love package or just takes a prospect.

That wouldn't work because Salmons is 7.583mil for trade purposes.

Salmon's, Ross and the 20th pick for asik, parsons and the 25th pick.

They move up 5 spots in the draft and also get a lot of capspace due to unloading asik and buying out salmon's. They were also high on drafting Ross in 2012.

In declining their offer this year, he's a restricted free agent, so they can match any offer. If they picked up his option, he'd be unrestricted next off season. They are probably declining the option too to show good faith with Parsons so he's not getting paid peanuts again this upcoming year in comparison to his production, but mostly it's so they can keep him restricted so they can control his destiny in a sense...

Unless another team goes crazy and offers Parson 12+ million a year, then all bets are off.

Ya..... with the numbers he put up over the last two years, he will be offered at the very least $8 million/5 years or $10 million/4 years..

Small Forwards currently signed to 4-(mostly 5 year) $40-45 million dollar deals:

-Nicolas Batum - 4 year
-Danilo Gallinari - 4 year
-Gerald Wallace - 4 year
-Shawn Marion - 5 year
-Thaddeus Young - 5 year

If we buyout salmon's not take the QO on patman and waive Hans. Do we have enough to sign parsons to 10 mil per as well as Lowry?

Ok but they need the cap room now and if they keep him on his rookie deal now, when he's a UFA, they can resign him and exceed the cap and they can use the cap room they need to improve this year. OR...The only thing that makes sense here is resigning him to a long term deal, paying him 10 million to help balance salaries in a trade that he's going to be a part of. For Love for example. You can resign and trade a player correct?

Trading him for Salmons is trading a million for a million and makes almost no sense does it?
