Should Grizz Entertain Offers For Chandler Parson?

Recommended Posts

Chip you're forgetting that we can have two way players next year. So essentially we can have 17 on the roster

I believe the two way contracts are for projects not NBA players already under contract. I suppose Rade and the 1st round pick could be given these contracts but I don't believe a 1st round pick or a European player would give up their deals for a contract that only offers them $75,000 a year.

Let’s start with the “two-way contracts,” which NBA teams each get two of. They are essentially a retainer that those teams can place on younger players they want to be the 16th and 17th men on their roster, holding their rights as they bounce between the D-League — where they will likely spend the majority of the year — and the NBA. The catch is that those players have to have less than three years service as a professional, and the point of it is to provide a financial incentive for younger players with the potential to reach the NBA to remain stateside while allowing those NBA teams to develop them.

That financial incentive is fairly large, as well: Two-way players will make $75,000 guaranteed and will be able to make up to $275,000, depending on the amount of time they spend with the NBA team.

Just going to state this data:

After 6% of the season:

When Chandler plays: W W W W

When Chandler sits: L

Take that for Otters!!!!

And this is a simple reminder that correlation does not equal causation.

You standing your ground Memphis X?  I mean, no one is taking him now, but do you think we should just ride it out?  The bad contract?  Hey it happens sometimes!  Nothing is guranteed.

That was a month into his first season before realizing the Grizzlies lied about the extent of his injury.

i won’t say what I prefer to happen because it isnt nice.

I posted that kind of jokingly and kind of seriously in last night's game thread. I mean, the guy has had 1 good game in 88 opportunities with the Grizz, he hasn't even been available for 49 of those opportunities and has had injury plagued seasons for the past 3 season including knee surgeries(on both knees). If he goes on a 20 game tear, why not see if you can trade him because what's more likely to happen is that he will be injured again. He's had surgery on both knees. I guarantee if he goes on a tear and gets injured, the same people who wanted to keep him would be questioning why didn't we trade him when we had a chance. 

 

And I was one of the few people on this board who supported the move to sign him and was optimistic that his injuries were behind him and that he would be an asset to the Grizz. A lot of people were ripping the move. He's a good player when healthy but he's also killing our cap flexibility and ability to acquire upgrades in talent.

The first time I ever saw Chandler Parsons play, he was still with the Rockets, and was literally on fire. I remember thinking “this guy has range to mid court”. What i saw last night very much reminded me of that game. Here’s to hoping he stays healthy.
