Grizzlies, forward Chandler Parsons agree to separation

Grizzlies, forward Chandler Parsons agree to separation

The eighth-year forward and Memphis have agreed to part ways, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

I will continue to work out and train until my agent and the team reach a resolution. But, he has been medically cleared since December 21, according to the report.

Parsons still has $38 million remaining on the four-year contract he signed in July 2016. The team believes that it will be able to work out a trade for the small forward, as his expiring contract increases his value, though given the size of Parsons' contract, the team might have to throw in draft picks to entice another franchise into making a deal.

Parsons is still guaranteed for a $25M salary until the 2019-20 season, so it's obvious that the Grizzlies should get creative in dealing the veteran forward to an interested team.

According to the report, the final straw between Parsons and Memphis centered around the possibility of the team assigning him to its G League affiliate.

Chelsea boss Sarri happy with Hudson-Odoi for Spurs defeat
The winger started the Blues' Carabao Cup defeat by Tottenham on Tuesday and certainly enhanced his already burgeoning reputation. Hudson-Odoi has indicated that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge amid interest from Bayern Munich , who are keen to sign him.

"We met with Chandler and spoke with him and his representation numerous times during his rehab process, laying out a number of options to help integrate a healthy and effective Chandler back on to the floor", Wallace wrote in a statement on Sunday night. "Unfortunately, that option wasn't presented to me". Based on discussions with the Memphis medical staff, Parsons expected to return for a road game in Sacramento that day.

Parsons had chosen to scrimmage 5-on-5 with the Grizzlies to prove his readiness in recent weeks and made a positive impression on the coaching staff and teammates with his ability to still contribute offensively, sources said.

"Let's face it, the last two years have gone horribly and not the way I planned, but the reasons why I came to Memphis are still all intact", Parsons said then.

In 73 games with the Grizzlies, Parsons averaged roughly 18 minutes on the court per game, and scored roughly 6.5 points to pair with a measly two rebounds and an assist, not exactly what Grizzlies owner Robert Pera hoped he was paying for back in 2017.
