Chandler Parsons traded from Grizzlies to Hawks

Chandler Parsons Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have finally found a taker for Chandler Parsons.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Grizzlies have agreed to trade Parsons to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Solomon Hill and Miles Plumlee. Parsons was unable to come to an agreement on a buyout with Memphis, and the deal allows the Hawks to open up a roster spot.

Parsons, who has one year and roughly $25 million left on a contract that has turned into one of the worst in the NBA, looked like he was going to be moved prior to the trade deadline last season. He and the Grizzlies agreed to part ways after Parsons said he was fully recovered from a knee injury but the team still was not playing him. Memphis could not find a trade partner, however, so Parsons had to awkwardly return to the team for the remainder of the season.

Since he signed a four-year, $94 million contract with the Grizzlies prior to the 2016-17 season, Parsons has averaged less than 8.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game. A fresh start should help him if he is indeed healthy.
