Chandler Parsons and Mark Cuban used to be pretty tight.
ESPN's Tim MacMahon outlined that relationship, and how it ultimately fell to a business decision, in an awesome article that went live today. Parsons makes his return to Dallas tonight, now as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies, and the concerns of Cuban still linger over the decision to offer Chandler a max contract. The Grizzlies saw Parsons as worth it, but the wing is not quite right. His knee is clearly not 100%, or his faith in it is not 100%, and Parsons is still on a minutes limit for Memphis.
Surely Chandler wants to have a tremendous game in his former home arena. But whether or not he is physically able to play at the level necessary to succeed in Dallas tonight remains to be seen.
