In an effort to also be available to play some power forward while becoming more versatile, Chandler Parsons talked about bulking up his body.

In response, Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle smiled and said: “One man’s bulking up is another man’s not quite in shape yet. But he’s a really good player.

“I just think strength was the biggest [challenge] for me,” Parsons said. “Offensively, it’s just as tough for them guarding me when I take it out, pick-and-pop and do stuff like that.

“But I wanted to be able to guard them in the post, not have to front and do stuff like that. I think the added strength will definitely help.”
