Parsons gets a max deal just a year removed from major knee surgery. He came back to play 61 games and average 13.5 points per game, shooting a career best 41.4 percent from long range. It’s a risk, but clearly a risk Memphis is comfortable taking. Parsons reportedly had a max offer from Portland as well, but something about the Grizzlies must have appealed to him.
Parsons wasn’t shy about stating what he felt he deserved and why he deserved it. Credit to him, because he got it.
