NBA Role: versatile small forward • UnderDOG

Do-it-all forward Chandler Parsons is now scoring, boarding, dishing and defending on Beale Street; “one of the bros.”: Chandler’s the ultimate pitch man* (signals how much his teammates love playing with him?) – his game is predicated on getting others involved but Parsons maximizes your lineup’s potential when he’s in a groove; Chandler’s offense has blossomed over the years – yes, he’s 6’10 with a ratchet – Parsons also scores via methodical drives, (patient, waits til the last minute before his height advantage kicks in) quick floats & long-range bombs; deceptive pump fake – identical twin of his normal, line drive shot release; needs to rebound better, defend fours; room to get better?** – Parsons had a rough go during Year 1 in MEM – can he get healthy and become Coach Fizdale’s X-Factor?


**MEM is sorta banking on this; signed Parsons to a 4 year/$94 million deal in Summer ’16

Signature Move: pump fake, three-pointer
