2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Parsons' first season with the Mavericks didn't go according to plan as the midseason trade for Rajon Rondo and multiple injuries limited Parsons' overall productivity. He appeared in 66 games, the second lowest total of his career, and his 33 minutes per game were his lowest since his rookie season. Parsons finished the year averaging 15.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.0 steal per game. Parsons continued to shoot the ball well, hitting 46 percent of his attempts from the field and 38 percent from behind the arc, while connecting on 2.0 made three-pointers per game. His season ended prematurely after he aggravated a knee injury during the postseason. Surgery was performed in early May, and whispers of microfracture surgery emerged. The Mavs never publically revealed the extent of the procedure, but Parsons did document his progress through rehab on social media, helping ease some of those concerns. However, his availability to start training camp remains a question mark, and there's a chance his recovery carries over into the regular season. When he does return, Parsons hopes to assume a larger role in initiating the Dallas offense and could see some time as a point-forward. Parsons has a legitimate chance to improve in his second year in a Mavericks uniform, but his health remains the deciding factor.

2014-15

Chandler Parsons is entering his fourth season in the NBA. In his third and final season with the Rockets, Parsons continued to improve, averaging 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 38 minutes per game through 74 games played. He shot 47 percent from the field on 13.3 attempts per game and 74 percent from the free-throw line on 3.0 attempts per game. In one of the more peculiar decisions in free agency, the Rockets elected to make Parsons a restricted free agent. Dallas jumped at the chance, signing the forward to a lucrative three-year deal that Houston failed to match. After spending most of the summer with Team USA, Parsons will get a chance to play a bigger role in Dallas, joining teammates Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis to lead the offensive attack. The trio perfectly compliments one another, opening up opportunities all over the court. Coach Rick Carlisle wants to run an up-tempo offense, and Parsons, 17th in the league in fast break points last season, will be in the perfect position to continue his upward growth.

2013-14

Parsons had his believers last season, and if you were one of them, he probably holds a special place in your fantasy heart right now. Not only did he jump from 1.0 to 2.0 three-pointers per game from his first to his second year, but he did so while also pumping up his field-goal percentage from 45 to 49 percent. His free-throw percentage skyrocketed from 55 percent to 73 percent, and in turn, he averaged a career best 15.5 points per game. Parsons is the epitome of a guy who helps out everywhere and hurts you nowhere. The acquisition of Dwight Howard should only help Parsons, who should get even more open looks from downtown on inside-out plays. The current roster in Houston also means that Parsons and James Harden are easily the two most reliable long-range shooters, meaning shots should be plentiful and we could see a rise in three-pointers in 2013-14. The question that remains is whether or not last season was Parsons' ceiling or if he has significant room to get better. He will be 25 this season, so chances are we haven't seen him at his best yet, and if that's the case, he should be scooped up before the 40th pick in nine-category leagues.

2012-13

Rockets coach Kevin McHale did a lot of tinkering with his rotations last season, especially at small forward, but in the end, Parsons came away with a firm grasp on the starting job. He finished the season with averages of 9.5 points, 4.8 boards, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 threes in 28.6 minutes per game. Those numbers could improve in Parsons’ second NBA season, especially with a more concrete role on the team coming into the season. For a rookie, he had impressive shooting percentages of 45.2 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from downtown. Unfortunately he also shot just 55.1 percent from the line, though he averaged just 1.2 attempts per game. Parsons’ best free-throw shooting season in his four years of college was 66.2 percent, but that was also the year he had the most attempts. He could be something of a liability at the line, but at least he won’t be getting too many attempts at the charity stripe. The Rockets brought in Carlos Delfino in the offseason to compete with Parsons for minutes at the three, but given Parsons’ youth and McHale’s familiarity with him, it seems like the starting job is his to lose.

2011-12

The 38th overall pick in last year's draft, Chandler is a big man with some shooting and scoring ability. He'll vie for a reserve role at small forward behind Chase Budinger and Marcus Morris.
