Rockets to Keep Parsons no Matter What

The Rockets passed on picking up their option on Parsons’ contract Monday, but made him a qualifying offer. That will make Parsons, 25, a restricted free agent, with the Rockets able to match any offer sheet he signs.

Morey on several occasions has said simply Parsons will be back, anyway, but a person with knowledge of the Rockets’ pitch said that when the Rockets describe the team they will include Parsons among the teammates Anthony could join.
