The 27-year-old University of Florida alumnus is set to enter his sixthNBA season following another injury-plagued campaign in 2015-16.
Although his numbers were down a bit in comparison to previous seasons, Parsons still enjoyed a productive year, with averages of 13.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. He also had his most efficient season from a shooting perspective with a career-best field-goal percentage (.492) and three-point percentage (.414).
After averaging at least 15.5 points per game in each of the previous three seasons split between the Mavericks and the Houston Rockets, however, Parsons entered free agency with a bit of uncertainty.
Durability concerns are near the top of that list, as he has never played in more than 76 games in a single season. He missed 37 contests combined over the past two years.
When Parsons is healthy and in the lineup, he is a do-everything player.
The former second-round pick has primarily been a complementary piece rather than a go-to guy over the course of his career, although the size of his contract could dictate that he has an increased role moving forward.
