Chandler Parsons is finally ready to show his new club what he has to offer.
According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, Parsons’ debut for the Memphis Grizzlies has been bumped up to Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale also confirmed the news, per Michael Wallace of ESPN.

Parsons, 28, agreed to a max deal with Memphis over the summer but has been sidelined to this point after undergoing knee surgery back in March. He averaged 13.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game in 61 appearances for the Dallas Mavericks in 2015-16.
Fizdale has a big role in mind for the University of Florida product this season, so hopefully Parsons’ ability to stretch the floor, distribute, and play both forward positions provides the lift this aging 3-3 Grizzlies team needs.
