Are We Sleeping On Chandler Parsons?

According to The NBA Geek, Chandler Parsons has been better than Luol Deng and Paul Pierce this season.  His 4.5 Wins Produced halfway through the year places him 2nd on a Houston Rockets team likely bound for the playoffs.

Simply put, Parsons does everything well:

  • Scoring, check
  • Shooting, check
  • Rebounding, check
  • Passing, check
  • Defending, check 

Maybe he doesn’t get much credit because he was a 2nd round pick.  Perhaps it’s because of his absurdly low salary.  He could be slighted because he doesn’t do anything extremely well.  It may even be due to the fact that he has two very famous teammates.

Either way I would take Parsons as my starting 3 any day of the week.
