    Fallout from the Bosh headfake, plus the signing of a discounted Trevor Ariza,
    pulled the plug on Houston matching Dallas' offer sheet for Chandler Parsons.
    Not crazy about Cuban or the coaching in Dallas, but our man gets paid nicely.
    Interesting to see UCLA leading to another Gator success story once again.
    Good luck in the Big D, Chandler.

    That's fantastic for Chandler. I don't know much about free agency, but it appears that despite signing a three year contract, he can become a free agent after next season. Is this correct?

    Not crazy about coaching in Dallas? Rick Carlisle is a phenomenal coach with great reputation around the league.

    Great for Chandler. I'm curious what the Rockets' stats told them about why they shouldn't match. I'm sure they are trying to remain flexible to get Durant in 2 years as well.

    Very likable guy....but not really in the upper tier of coaching IMO.

    he's one of only 4 active head coaches with a ring, so he must be doing something right.

    Well who's in the upper tier then? Guy is a great coach. The Mavericks roster did not exactly scream "playoffs" last year yet they made it, and consequently gave San Antonio all they could handle. The 2011 Mavericks team was one of the best "teams" in the last 10 years. Truly a hodgepodge of marginal role players and old cagey vets combined with Dirk that came together beautifully to beat the Heatles. Maybe you forgot about this great team?

    BTW, Parsons is probably overpaid, he doesn't exactly have a great PER but I'm sure he's going to continue to improve. Having a 4 like Nowitzki is going to open his game up so much. This Mavericks team is going to spread people out and make a living from the perimeter, and then with cuts (Monta, Chandler). Will be a very dynamic offensive team, will be fun to watch for sure. Parsons makes even more sense because the Mavericks lack a good PG. Sorry, Devin Harris and Hamburger Felton are not very inspiring 1s. Expect Parsons to become even more renowned for his playmaking ability -- he's going to be handling the ball a lot more this year.

    And it doesn't matter that he's overpaid because Nowitzki took the hometown special and is grossly underpaid relative to his production. Cuban can afford Parsons salary cap hit. Plus the cap as we all now is going to increase quite a bit in 2016. And it screwed over Houston which I'm sure Cuban is thrilled about.

    Who is in your upper tier then? It looks like everyone here disagrees with you on Carlisle's coaching ability...so who's better? If you look at the champs from the last decade I'm not sure anyone did more with less than Carlisle.

    I'd peg Carlisle as the 2nd best coach behind Pops.

    By who's better...you mean recent coaches or all-time?
    I don't see Carlisle in the Top 10 on either list quite frankly.

    Parsons is part of the 18 player pool tagged to participate in a training camp before the Basketball World Cup.

    Ahead of Doc Rivers?
    Don't think so.

    Most certainly. What has Rivers ever done without a stacked roster and Tom Thibodeau? Hint, not much.

    And if Adelman hadn't retired, he'd be ahead of him too.
