Daily Debriefings: Chandler Parsons Gets His Money

After weeks of speculation, rumors, agreements and talks NBA free agents can official sign contracts starting today. While a large group of players are still waiting on LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh to make decisions, the two biggest restricted free agents signed offer sheets early this morning with Chandler Parsons and Gordon Hayward agreeing to terms with the Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Hornets respectively. The Rockets and Jazz now have three days to match the offers and the Rockets now only have three days to convince Bosh to sign in Houston. Things are about to get crazy folks, make sure to stay tuned. Onto today’s links:

Handsome Chandler Parsons: Parson’s agreed to a 3 year $46 million deal with the Mavericks. First Space City Hoops reacts to the news.  Then the Smoking Cuban grades it from the Mavs side and thinks that Parsons is worth the risk. 

How do sign-and-trades Work: The Mid-level Exceptional broke down how exactly sign-and-trades work. 

Remember, this is still a trade; you have to give up value, and the other party has to accept. General managers always want to get a return whenever they lose a piece, but at the same time, not every team around the league is going to facilitate sign-and-trades to help you build a super team. For a lot of executives, a marginal asset is not worth drastically improving a team that you’re going to compete against.

Lin to Philly? There is a report that Jeremy Lin will be heading to Philadelphia if the Rockets are able to land Chris Bosh.

Out Like a Lamb: Jeremy Lamb is struggling in the Orlando Summer League. Thunderous Intentions looks at what is going on. 

Zach Lowe: Finally, Zach Lowe looked at the Hornets decision to offer Hayward the contract they did and the Magic’s signing of Channing Frye.
