Chandler Parsons did not try to pretend Tuesday’s preseason opener between the Mavericks (his new team) and the Rockets (his former team) would be the usual “just another game.”

It won’t be like a regular-season game or the first meeting in Houston, but for it will be strange feeling for the fourth-year forward.

“It’s going to be a weird feeling,” Parsons said. “It’s definitely going to be awkward.

“Even though it’s a preseason game and Dirk (Nowitzki is) not playing and the rotation is not going to be regular-season game like, it will still be exciting. It will still be competitive. It’s not like it will be Nov. 22 in Houston, but it’s good to get it out of the way. It will be fun. “

“It will be a little uncomfortable at first, especially with Coach (Kevin) McHale,” Parsons said. “Players came and went in my career in Houston. (J.B.) Bickerstaff, McHale, Buck (Greg Buckner) and (Chris) Finch, those are my guys. It’s weird that they are planning the scouting report to stop me, to take away what I do. It’s just different and weird, but definitely exciting.”
