Chandler Parsons declined his $15.3 million dollar player option to become a free agent this summer in hopes of gaining a better contract for more money.

Parsons is now an unrestricted free agent, but it’s not clear whether he will return to the Dallas Mavericks.

Parsons spent a bulk of games injured playing only 66 and 61 games (his entire time in Dallas) the past two seasons.

Parsons averaged 13.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game, and he believes that he is good enough to warrant a max contract.

He took to twitter settle some fans who heckled him about why he opted out, and why he feels he deserves a max contract, seeing as he has been injured.

Here are Parsons' answer to fans who questioned his motivations:


Why did you opt out?


Why do you think you deserve a max contract?

Are you worried about told injuries?


The NBA Free agency period begins midnight July 1st, and Parsons has not ruled out a return to Dallas.
