Chandler Parsons agrees to offer sheet from Dallas for 3 years, $45 million with a player option after the second year. If Houston matches, they will be facing some serious luxury tax penalties if Bosh signs as well...

how long they have to match?
post #17073 of 27825
3 days
post #17074 of 27825
Offer sheets can't be signed until Thursday, but once they're signed, the team has 3 days to match.
post #17075 of 27825
thanks guys, so this basically changes nothing since it will all playout in next 3days
post #17076 of 27825
Yeah, basically.

that puts them in a big pickle...

I'd take Bosh easily, Bosh/Howard seem like a perfect fit and you get enough perimeter offense from James Haren, now sign a defensive wingx2 and you're set. Bosh is still better player than Parsons and most of all proven vet with exp. That exp comes in handy when you aim for the championship.

It's not that simple. There are a lot of moving pieces here and Mark Cuban just threw a wrench into all of it...

First, in order for the Rockets to get both Bosh and Parsons, Bosh has to sign first. Since Houston holds Parsons' Bird Rights, they are allowed to go over the salary cap to sign him. The same cannot be said for Bosh. You cannot breach the salary cap to sign a free agent from another team (unless it's MLE). If Houston matches the offer for Chandler before Bosh signs, they've lost Bosh for good. Also, don't forget that the Rockets haven't gotten rid of Jeremy Lin yet, which they have to do in order to sign Bosh to that max deal.

The way I see it, Houston is retaining Parsons no matter what. If by the 3rd day Bosh hasn't made up his mind, the Rockets are going ahead and matching the Mavs offer.

So basically this hinges on what Chris Bosh does, and I guess what he does hinges on what LeBron does. And that cunning bastard Mark Cuban fucked the Rockets hard on this one. Daryl Morey must be fuming right now. Well played...

The only sure thing in all of this is that the Rockets owner has said he is willing to pay any luxury tax penalties that they're subject to for a championship-caliber team, so if Houston has the opportunity to sign both Bosh and Parsons, it's basically a foregone conclusion that they will.

I think it's stupid my FB friends going nuts over Parsons saying the Rockets have to match no matter what. Parsons is a good player and all but at $15M a year, GTFO. I don't get why they're so attached to Parsons. I'd gladly get rid of Parsons for Bosh, Rondo, or some other top tier player.

its because he's so handsome. its like that seinfield episode where george has a plutonic crush on a male model.

i think rockets are supposed to have a lin trade lined up with the sixers

but well played mark cuban well played. it works out great whether or not parsons actually signs with them.


do lebron and bosh have a deadline at all? couldn't find anything.

Well, I think the Rockets indeed have to match no matter what because the alternative is the Rockets let him sign with Dallas and get nothing in return.  The best case scenario is Houston gets both Bosh and Parsons like I outlined in my previous post.  If Bosh signs with Houston and Houston lets Parsons walk, they're not getting a better player than him through free agency since they basically would only have the MLE to give to free agents.  Rondo is not a free agent this year, so the Rockets would have to trade for him (possibly a sign-and-trade with Parsons), but I think Pat Beverley is serviceable for now and it's not worth giving up another quality starter to get Rondo.  Boston sure as shit isn't willing to take Jeremy Lin in return for Rondo...

Nope, LeBron and Bosh are unrestricted free agents and can wait until the last day of free agency to sign if they want.
