That wouldn't help. Lin's a terrible team defender, even Morey admitted to this, this month. It's a flow through effect. Remember when the Rockets needed Wesley as the missing part to help out Yao's defense?

If the Rockets really wanted to ramp up their defense pair Harden with Afflalo. The frontcourt will suddenly look like better defenders too.

I'd sell high on him. From that sf spot I'd like defense and to at least have one thing you can hang your hat on offensively. He's an inconsistent shooter and his drives to the basket are cringe worthy.

To me it seems like he's regressed in a few areas since last year. I though he had more explosiveness but he finishes at the rim like a chump.

I agree with you. He has good value b/c he does a lot of different things, so if we want to upgrade positions we have to consider trading him. You can't get good players for garbage.

Players like Chandler aren't hard to find. He's a glorified Trevor Ariza - good defender, streaky shot, and mediocre handles.

Source? I definitely like to hear the context for the statement made by Morey on Lin's terrible help defense.

Morey never said that.

What Morey said was that Lin can't stay in front of the most Elite PG's in the league, but he's able to still have a disruptive impact on their opponent offense ala Kyle Lowry by making those players uncomfortable.

And that while Lin can sometimes drive the coaches crazy when he goes off the reservation in team defensive sets, his does the little things that influence wins like Steals, blocks, rebounds and generally disrupting the opposing offense.

They need to move Parsons to the PF spot and start James Anderson at SF.

They need to rest Parsons and not let him injure his shoulder again.

once we get a good pf chandler will look better hes expected to defend and score and pass and rebound are u kidding me , before when we had a post-game(scola) it would suck in the defenders , get the guys open lanes to penetrate and get open looks i really thing getting a post game would really open up our game when nothing is working , miami couldnt win a title without a postgame so lebron hit the post , im not asking for lebron but we cant play without an inside game , bring back scola or big baby

If Parsons wasn't handsome nobody would want to keep him.

We need Parsons to be an elite perimeter defender but he is just not. Most of the accolades he gets on defense is just homerism because we like him as a player. He gets burned one on one all the time and I just don't know what is up with his team defense this year.

Most teams are using a big SG or a SF as their elite perimeter defender.

Ron Artest, Lebron, N. Batun, Wade, L. Deng, Kobe, Thabo Selovich, Iguodala, Shumpert, Paul George, AK-47, JR. Smith etc.

Parson can't have success at SF I am convinced of that. But if we move him to PF he can space the floor with his range and beat PF with his first step.

Parsons has a slow first step on offense. I've never seen him take his defender one-on-one. On the other hand, he is a good spot up shooter, has good instincts, good defender, and good passer. Great contract, but not more than a solid role player unless he can develop additional skills.

Looks like his shoulder is still bothering him. One would struggle to get reps up in practice if they didnt want to exacerbate the injury..

You guys seem to think that Parsons can be an offensive weapon while still locking down players defensively you need to rethink that. Last year we had Lowry/Dragic (streaky offensive players but could put up numbers), Scola and Martin as your main offensive weapons with Parsons being an after thought. Now seeing as they shipped out everyone I just mentioned, how is he going to be able to play on both ends of the floor when you have Lin struggling with his confidence while having to share the ball with Harden and virtually no real PF (Patterson was doing well before his injury, Morris was playing well but has since regressed). Not to mention Asik who always gets caught too close to the basket and can't explode off the floor quickly before he's blocked or has to pass out.

If Morey can somehow trade for good stretch PF you'll definitely see Parsons more effective on the defensive end. I honestly think Parson's ceiling is Prince but he can shoot 3's.

If he goes just make sure we get something great in return, not good/j.smooth Morey but Great/Cousins because Parsons is alright in my book...

He will get there on defense in time, and he will be more than respectable on offense if he puts in the work.
His potential is higher than Shane Battier.
