Grizzlies won't include pick in Parsons deal

Grizzlies, Chandler Parsons mutually agree to part ways after playing time saga, per report Report: Former Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons to leave Grizzlies indefinitely

Chandler Parsons and the Memphis Grizzlies are apparently parting ways, with the forward choosing to rehab away from the team rather than take a G League assignment.

Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace wanted Parsons to play multiple games with their G League team, the Memphis Hustle, before returning to the Grizzlies active roster, per Wojnarowski. "Unfortunately that option wasn't presented to me". Parsons, however, said he's healthy and has been cleared to return since December 21. I will continue to work out and train until my agent and the team reach a resolution.

Parsons is now in the third year of his four-year, $94 million deal with the Grizzlies. Per ESPN, Memphis still believes it will be able to trade Parsons, although the team has been hesitant to include a first-round pick in any deal.

Parsons had season-ending knee surgery during the 2015-16 season and opted out of the final year of his contract with the Mavericks, in which he was set to earn $16 million.

Chandler Parsons' career with the Memphis Grizzlies is likely over, with the two sides agreeing to a separation on Sunday, league sources told ESPN.

However, the front office wanted him to do a stint in the G-League before allowing him to play for the Grizzlies, and a dispute over how that would work became the last straw.

"We will continue to monitor Chandler's progress", Wallance said. Based on discussions with the Memphis medical staff, Parsons expected to return for a road game in Sacramento that day.

Questions remain as to where Parsons will ultimately end up.

"Let me play!" Parsons shouted at Wallace several times after hitting 3-pointers during a scrimmage, sources said.

Parsons has been limited to 73 games, primarily because of knee problems, since signing with the Grizzlies in the summer of 2016. Some were surprised that Parsons - who had averaged over 13 points per game four years in a row at that point, but whom had never been an All-Star - received a maximum value contract from Memphis.
