Guess I was holding out hope that Parson's expiring contract would be worth a heavily-protected future pick to a soon-to-be contending team (like Nuggets) or big-market team (like Knicks).  Guess not.

Not sure how this deal deserves any type of grade on either side.

This may be the biggest nothing burger ever but its awesome!

Actually, I think this is a psychological boon for the front office and players. Parsons was and has been a distraction. We didn't give up anything and we got rid of a headache. They didn't buy him out and give him a ton of money to leave. It doesn't matter on the court but it matters off the court. these 2 guys don't bring the bagge that he does, plus it's easier to trade and/or waive/buyout 2 players on lesser deals than a diva with one huge contract.

Why would a contending team do that? All along I thought it would be a rebuilding team needing to fill salary room. ATL needed to free up a roster spot and just swapped salaries. It helped both teams.

Amazing how stoked I am to trade for 2 marginal, overpaid players.

But I'm sure glad Parsons has been traded.

I wonder if Ivan Rabb should be worried now?  Plumlee can be the back up C that we hoped Rabb could one day become.

Glad we got out of a bad contract and a player that seems to have no desire to even be in the league. 

YO

Then why'd he come back to play after being sent away?

I agree. How many guys have to get moved/waived to get to 15 now?

Agree.   The grizzlies had to make a move.     What the roster will look like at the start of the season, who knows?

Been watching Dimash reaction videos and realized I didn't react  to this news.

What can I say. Its the off-season.

* Don't know how I got this link wrong. Yes, I do. I'd had a couple.
