Chandler Parsons deserves max because he is ‘really good at basketball’

Chandler Parsons Mavs

With NBA free agency set to get underway later this week, huge dollar amounts will be flying around and massive contracts will be agreed upon. Among those hoping to land a big deal is Chandler Parsons.

Parsons held a player option for the upcoming season to spend his third season in Dallas with the Mavericks. However, Parsons opted out and turned his back on $16 million. The versatile forward will instead set his sights on larger contract that could earn him in excess of $20 million next season. And, as he explained to someone who asked him via Twitter, Parsons believes he deserves a max contract, because he’s really good.

It’s a simple answer, but a correct one. Parsons is more than capable as an outside shooter and has shown the ability to be a facilitator as well. Some will point to recent knee issues as perhaps a reason to be leery of offering Parsons a lucrative long-term contract. The 27-year-old doesn’t see that as a potential road block, though.

Teams having more money to spend this summer combined with the valuable skillset he brings means Parsons likely won’t have trouble landing a contract in the range he’s looking for. The only question is who will be the team to offer it.
