    I think we should let Parsons walk and go get some other FA to bolster our bench. With all of that money not spent on Parsons we could go get guys like Birdman, Ed Davis, Andre Blatche, Jameer Nelson, Brandon Rush, etc. I would rather have all of those guys than just Chandler.

    The next season would be the final test for Harden too, especially in playoffs. If harden disappear again in playoffs, he would be on trade talk to exchange for another superstar.

    I am aware that this comparison is not entirely fair, but you get the idea.

    Per 36 minutes
    Player 1: 15.6PPG, 49.2% 2P%, 35.8% 3P%, 3.3RPG, 5.2APG, 1.2SPG
    Player 2: 15.9PPG, 47.2% 2P%, 37.0% 3P%, 5.3RPG, 3.9APG, 1.1SPG

    One is your favorite whipping boy (25M/3years) and one is Parsons (46M/3years).

    You can't lose Parsons and losing him to Dallas would just be the worst we wouldn't of cared if he went home to Florida or Cleveland but Dallas nah you match that or pay for it and you know what former players do to the Rockets they end up going James Anderson on us

    I only want this in order to package&trade him later in exchange for a third star (Rondo, Love, Millsap, Durant, etc.). Horrible contract and not what we need on this team.

    The Rockets are not in any serious danger of exceeding the Luxury Tax Threshold of 76 million dollars even if they match Chandler Parsons contract. Matching Parsons, signing both draft picks and resigning Troy Daniels will only put us about ~70 million in salary cap which is still 6 million away from the Tax Threshold. The team also has an additional 4.1 million in non-guaranteed contracts that they can cut if needed to keep Les from paying any tax.

    has this offseason not showed you that having cap room doesn't mean anything?

    Match him because we will then have a large TPE and the MLE.

    I think Ariza is a better fit for the starting line up though. I like the idea that someone suggested: bring Parsons off the bench to backup the 3 and 4. Reduce Harden's minutes as well this way as I think Parsons/Ariza as the 3/2 can really work for this team.

    If he doesn't like the bench very much, hopefully he can buy something with his money to comfort him. If that's not good enough, he can consent to a trade to a team of our choosing.

    What I like about this is it's possible for everyone to win except Mark Cuban. However, I firmly believe Mark Cuban will offer $12-13m/year to Stephenson.

    Well, how about last season? DH came through because we had the cap room. We missed because we were dealing with Bosh.

    Match him, next season trade him to milwaukee for some 2nd rounders. Teach him what happens when you cross Daryl Morey.
    Or when he signs ship him to rvg and make him stay there right before the playoffs.
    Or put him on the bench, and only put him in only when there is a huge lead.
    Im jk. Haha

    Numbers don't lie, but they don't tell everything either.
    Lin and Parsons a great friends, but they don't have much in common on the court.

    I think they match in order to flip him later. DM the GM won't pay him like a star without flipping him.

    Parsons is better of the bench.

    Period.

    But 15 million also says otherwise.

    If we don't match its because Lex doesn't want to fork up the $$$$.

    Ariza doesn't have the durability for us to depend on him being a starter, we need Parsons as the starter or we're punting on the season before it begins.

    I honestly believe Ariza would be better off the bench.
