Chandler Parsons on his future in Houston: 'Ask Daryl Morey'

During one of his many Twitter question and answer sessions, Chandler Parsons was asked if he’d ever leave the Houston Rockets and the small forward gave an interesting response.

If you’re unfamiliar with who @Dmorey is, that’s Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. With Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports recently reporting that the Rockets will allow Parsons to hit the free agent market, restricted albeit, Parsons’ tweet seems as a precursor to the news.

Whether Parsons wants to remain in Houston or not, he’ll draw a lot of attention as one of the marquee free agent small forwards, below the tier that includes Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony and alongside the likes of Gordon Hayward, Luol Deng, and Rudy Gay. As far as money, pundits predict that Parsons could command around $10 to $12 million on a four-year deal, more if a team feels a max contract would be the best way to lure away the 25 year old Florida product.

Since Woj’s news was released, many began to worry about what Morey had planned, obviously number one on his list is flexibility, but as Sean Highkin of USA Today Sports points out, allowing young players to hit the market restricted is Morey’s way of doing things.

Regardless of what Morey or Parsons decides to do, Chandler is another big name added to what should be an interesting free agent grouping.
