Parsons Trying to Sell Howard on Houston
Rockets players have a thread that allows them to share text messages as a group this offseason. (Chandler) Parsons, however, added a separate thought for Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, the Rockets’ primary free-agent target.
“After watching that last night,” Parsons said, “I hit him with, ‘Come to Houston. That could be us.’ ”
“I talk to Dwight every day,” Parsons said. “I’ve created a relationship with him, where I feel like we’re very close. He hits me up about everything. I’ve covered pretty much every question he’s had. I basically tell him, ‘We have a chance to be really good without you next year. We’re going to have a good season. Why not come and join us, join our core guys who are for sure to be here and make us great, make us contend for a championship?’
