Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle apologized to Chandler Parsons for publicly criticizing the team’s prized, free-agent addition’s weight and conditioning after Friday night’s preseason game.

“It was unfair and inappropriate to single out Chandler Parsons after the game Friday night,” Carlisle wrote in a statement issued Sunday afternoon. “I have apologized to him and the entire team for this error in judgment. Not only is Chandler Parsons one of our best players, he is also one of our hardest working players and the kind of high-character person we strive to bring to our city and franchise.

“I also made it clear to our players and staff this morning that this type of bad example is not acceptable and beneath the dignity of a championship organization like the Dallas Mavericks.”

“It just shows what kind of guy he is,” Parsons said of Carlisle’s apology. “We’re in this together. Everybody makes mistakes, and he came to me as a man. We have a great relationship. It’s in the past, and we’re going to move forward. It’s over with.”
