Houston will not exercise team option on Parsons so he can become a RFA with the right to match going to the Rockets.

He would have been an UFA after next season if they didnt do this, so it helps them keep him around longer.

However, should a team offer Parsons more than what he is worth to put Houston in a jam?

I would actually go after Parsons, but we're not contending.

I could see Cuban and Donnie Nelson putting together a serious, super competitive bid if we don't see ourselves in the running for any of the top targets in free agency.

Dallas should be a prime position for him. Also can hold him over once Dirk retires.

Orlando is really the only team I'm worried will throw near max money at him.

In reality, Morey wouldn't have done this unless he had a couple of assurances.

1. An assurance from Dwight or whoever is recruiting hard that Target A is coming to Houston.
2. That Fegan/Morey have agreed to a "hush-hush" under the table deal with the Rockets for Parsons to sign after we sign Target A using his bird rights.

Obviously the worst case scenario would be that Parsons scums us (Boozer-esque) and goes out and signs an offer sheet before we sign our target but I see that as unlikely. Mostly because he still wants to compete for a title.

I think its a set up for going after Love near the trade deadline. One of our biggest problems is that our most marketable trade asset doesnt have a big enough salary for us to make trades with.

giving Parsons 10 million a season would be fair market value and not massive enough to scare off potential trade fits, but also not small enough that we have to throw in a lot more pieces to make a trade happen.

There is no signing "Player A" until Lin and Asik are traded, which could happen around the draft. Asik would be gone in an instant if we decided to take a 2nd round pick for him, and Lin would be tradeable but it might cost us our 1st rounder, but why wouldnt a team that plans on rebuilding take the PR that Lin brings, especially on a low risk 1 year deal with a cap hit of 8.3 million.

my fear is that some team comes in and throws a 3 year 40 million deal at Parsons, or that he gets crazy Josh Smith type money...in that case he is gone......most i would consider is 4 year 48 million, but that would probably result in his departure as well.

I love Parsons, but if the rockets bring in Melo or Love then Parsons becomes a liability because we would be in desperate need of a lock down defender at the 3.

ideally the rockets would find a way to put this line up on the floor next season:

Beverly - Harden - Sefolosha - Love or Melo - Howard

that team would be the hands down favorite in the west

What's the difference between RFA & UFA in the NBA

Teams have the opportunity to match any offer sheet signed by a RFA. For example, Chandler Parsons could sign a 4 year, $40MM offer sheet with the Orlando Magic. The Rockets would have three days to match the offer or let him walk.

I thought players still become RFAs even if you accept their option? They then just don't hit FA until the year after obviously. What's the deal?

Being a second round pick gave Morey some freedom in terms of contract language. Parsons wanted the guaranteed money and in exchange we got a couple of cheap years out of him and got the early RFA option.
