(Chandler) Parsons was not exactly caught off guard when he learned the Rockets had chosen not to match the Mavericks’ offer sheet.

“I’m not surprised,” Parsons said. “That’s up to them. At the end of the day it’s a business. They have to do what’s best for their future moving forward. It’s out of my control. That was on them.”

“I viewed myself as an up and coming star in this league,” Parsons said. “They were the ones that made the offer and look at me like a franchise-max player. That’s what I wanted. I want to be a priority.

“I want a bigger role. (Mavericks owner) Mark Cuban and Coach (Rick) Carlisle made that clear to me, that’s how they view me and that’s what I’ll be in Dallas. I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity.”
