I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if the Rockets not picking up the option on Chandler Parsons is an intelligent ploy to use him in a sign-and-trade or to retain him later. However, if we don't pick up Wiggins or Parker with the #3 pick, that would mean the Small Forward position is still open.
Is anyone else interested in signing Parsons? I'm a big fan of his shooting ability, defensive energy, and motor. I understand this is irrelevant if a bad team offers him a crazy contract, but in general, is anyone else interested in seeing him in a Sixers jersey?
Some quick stats:
2013-14 - 16.6 PPG, 4 Ast, 5.5 Reb, 1.2 Stl, 47% FG, 37% 3P
He has increased his PPG, RPG and APG each year he's been in the league.
