Chandler Parsons, Memphis Grizzlies agree to part ways

The Grizzlies are going to have a very hard time finding a trade partner for Chandler Parsons, who has arguably the worst contract in the National Basketball Association.

Memphis Grizzlies forward Chandler Parsons will reportedly leave the team indefinitely after Sunday.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the team and Parsons' agent, James Dunleavy of ISE Sports, will work on a "resolution" for Parsons' future as well as a trade for the eighth-year veteran.

The 30-year-old Parsons is owed $38 million from his four-year $94 million maximum contract.

Parsons has been willing to play games with G League affiliate the Memphis Hustle but wanted a clearer plan and a timetable in place that would return him to the Grizzlies' active roster, league sources said.

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. Before signing with Memphis, Parsons had never played fewer than 61 games in a season in the National Basketball Association with stints in Houston and Dallas. Meanwhile, Parsons was okay with going down to the farm team, but wanted a clear plan in place for his return to National Basketball Association action. Originally, he was expected to be back in late December, but that timeframe came and went without Parsons getting onto the court.

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. "Chandler subsequently chose to continue his rehab in Los Angeles".

According to an ESPN report, the eighth-year swingman and Memphis have agreed to part ways. The team still believes Parsons will have value as an expiring contract, even if it takes into the offseason to make a deal.

Parsons has not played since exiting the Grizzlies' third game of the season because of soreness in his right knee.

Wallace says the Grizzlies met with Parsons and spoke with both the forward and his representation numerous times during his rehab on how to "integrate a healthy and effective Chandler back onto the floor".
