We already know Chandler Parsons has been a great recruiter of other NBA players in the past. He was credited for pitching the idea to Dwight Howard of coming to the Houston Rockets, which was Parsons old team. Parsons, while injured, was also know to recruit free agents to his new team the Dallas Mavericks.
Well, the star small forward is back at it again, this time, trying to recruit point guard Patrick Beverley to the Mavericks.
Johnathan Feigan of the Houston Chronicle shed light on the situation after he spoke to Beverley,
With Pat Beverley heading into free agency, the Rockets point guard said he is already seeing the renowned recruiting talents of former teammate Chandler Parsons first hand.
“I hear from Chandler every day,” Beverley said. “It’s hard, but I try not to think about it. I can’t talk about contracts. It’s going to be a fun summer. I have put myself in a position to be set for life and that’s something that I never thought was possible growing up.”
We all know that Rajon Rondo will probably not end up resigning with the Mavericks after multiple incidents with head coach Rick Carlisle, along with sub par play.
With that being said, if Rondo does go elsewhere, Beverley would be a great fit for the Mavericks. Carlisle’s system usually revolves around a point guard who is a perimeter threat. That is Beverley in a nutshell.
It may be tough to outbid the Houston Rockets because the Mavericks would have to offer something in the range of $10 million per year. If they would like to bring in a start free agent like a DeAndre Jordan, they would be cutting it close with their salary cap trying to bring in Beverley as well.
The Rockets definitely value Beverley, but at the same time, bringing in a third star to complement James Harden and Dwight Howard could be exactly what they need to give them their best chance at an NBA title. After all, they are in the same conference as the Splash Brothers.
