    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons had 21 points versus the Rockets on Wednesday.
    Insight: Parsons really only supplies shooting totals and will have the occassional off night, so he isn't as valuable in fantasy as one might expect. Parsons is averaging 17.4 ppg with just 1.8 apg and 1.8 rpg over his last five games.
     
    1/27/2015 10:52:00 PM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons hit three 3-pointers and was 7-of-11 from the field as he led Dallas with 19 points on Tuesday.
    Insight: Monta Ellis also had 19 points, but it wasn't nearly enough as Dallas lost to Memphis, 109-90. Parsons had three assists and two rebounds in addition to his 19 points. Parsons is averaging over 15 ppg.
     
    1/21/2015 10:13:00 PM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons scored a team-high 22 points during Wednesday's victory over the Timberwolves.
    Insight: He shot 9-of-13 from the field and 4-of-6 from downtown. Parsons also had two assists, two boards, one block, and one turnover. He is a top-65 option.
     
    1/17/2015 9:10:00 AM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds versus the Nuggets.
    Insight: Parsons had a bad night from the 3-point line, but he was 6-of-11 overall and made 83.3 percent from the foul line. Parsons is averaging 15.4 ppg and 5.0 rpg this season.
     
    12/17/2014 9:50:00 PM

    Insight: He missed Dallas' previous game, but is ready to get back on the court. Get him into your lineup.
     
    12/16/2014 12:32:00 PM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons (back) is questionable for Tuesday's game against New York.
    Insight: He has been playing well of late, but missed Saturday's game and was still dealing with the stiff back Monday. Richard Jefferson played 35 minutes Saturday as his replacement and posted a surprising 13 points and 13 rebounds.
     
    12/13/2014 1:40:00 PM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons (back) will not play Saturday against the Warriors.

    12/9/2014 10:22:00 PM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons nailed six 3-pointers during Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies.
    Insight: He was 10-of-18 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 30 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block, and one turnover. Extremely solid line for Parsons and his owners.
     
    12/3/2014 9:14:00 AM

    Insight: Parsons shot 4-for-9 from the 3-point line and finished with 17 points. He also had nine rebounds, six rebounds and a steal while not turning the ball over once.
     
    11/12/2014 9:43:00 AM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons played much better on Tuesday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting against the Kings.
    Insight: Parsons scored a combined nine points in his last two games, so it was nice to see the small forward be more productive. He also contributed four rebounds, three assists and a steal.

    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons rebounded from a terrible opening night.
    Insight: After scoring only five points on Tuesday, Parsons came to life with 21 points and seven rebounds. He should continue to score in this high-octane offense.
     
    10/28/2014 4:06:00 PM
    Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons (sore knee) went through a full practice Monday and should be ready to start the opener for his new team.
    Insight: Parsons should be the No. 3 option behind Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis and after a bit of slow start while trying to fit in on a new team will produce solid numbers.
     
    10/22/2014 12:15:00 PM
    Description: The Mavericks' three-year, $46 million offer to Chandler Parsons got them a top quality, underrated fantasy small forward for 2014-15
    Insight: Parsons should be the No. 3 option behind Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis and after a bit of slow start while trying to fit in on a new team will produce solid numbers - 15.6 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 3.6 apg, 1.3 spg.
     
    7/13/2014 6:56:00 PM
    Description: The Houston Rockets have decided not to match the Mavericks' three-year, $46 million offer sheet to Chandler Parsons.
    Insight: Parsons proved he could be a fantasy force while playing with high-usage players James Harden and Dwight Howard, so he should fit right in on the Mavericks.
     
    7/9/2014 7:36:00 PM
    Description: The Mavericks and restricted free agent Chandler Parsons have reached an agreement on a three-year offer sheet worth in excess of $45 million, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
    Insight: The Rockets will have 72 hours to match the offer after Parsons officially signs on Thursday. The Rockets prefer to sign Chris Bosh than to retain Parsons, but a lot depends on what LeBron James decides to do. The Mavs are certainly forcing rival Houston's hand.
     
    6/4/2014 12:44:00 PM
    Description: The Rockets plan to decline their fourth-year option on forward Chandler Parsons' contract, allowing him to become a restricted free agent this summer. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
    Insight: The Rockets now have the option to match an offer sheet from any other team and retain Parsons on a long-term contract. The current option on Parsons' fourth year is worth $960,000 and the team has until June 30 to formally decline the option. Parsons, 25, averaged 16.6 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game for Houston last season and delivered a slightly-above league average 15.9 PER.
