Chandler Parsons key to Dwight Howard landing in Houston

Published on July 25, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Many wondered why Dwight Howard opted to go with the Houston Rockets. Well a big reason for that was Chandler Parsons. I am sure many are shocked to hear this. Maybe if it was James Harden.

Parsons is an Orlando native, who played at Florida. So Parsons know Howard when he played for the Magic. Another connection between the two is there agent Dan Fegan.

Here is what Parsons had to say about Howard joining the Rockets below.

“I think I had a big impact,” Parsons said at USA Basketball’s mini-camp. “The first thing he said at the press conference was that, ‘You guys should thank Chandler Parsons because he is a big reason why I am here.’

“I spent a lot of time during the summer in L.A.,” Parsons said. “We kind of just hit it off. We literally would text every day. He’d call me at 8 p.m. with a question and then he’d call me at midnight with the same question. I respect the way he handled [his free agency]. He took his time and weighed all his options.
