Rockets rookie Parsons signs with French team


Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports has the story:

Rockets rookie F @ChandlerParsonsagrees to contract with France Cholet with an NBA out as early as Oct. 3, agent Mark Bartelstien tells Y!.

The 6-10 Florida alum was taken by the Rockets with the 38th overall pick in the draft, and was named the SEC player of the year in his final season with the Gators. Parsons’ versatility for a big man should make him a good fit overseas, but I’m sure the Rockets would like to see him practicing with their team the instant the lockout gets resolved.
