|HOUSTON Alex McGough Seahawks Jersey , July 13 (Xinhua) -- The Houston Rockets on Sunday decided to let Chandler Parsons go, choosing not to match a three-year, 46 million U.S. dollars contract offered by the Dallas Mavericks.
Two days ago, they already traded away Jeremy Lin to free more salary cap to land Chris Bosh, unsuccessfully.
The Rockets made the decision not to match Parsons' offer sheet, because they believed that with the contracts held by Parsons Michael Dickson Seahawks Jersey , Dwight Howard and James Harden they would be essentially locked in to a team that was not strong enough to win a championship, a league source told the Houston Chronicle.
In such a move, Houston may be eyeing next summer when they could have up to max cap room to buy a top free agent who can join Howard and Harden to build the team into a championship contender.
They were trying to do that in the last couple of weeks when they first traded Omer Asik and then Lin to free up salary cap room. Houston wooed LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh, among other big names.
They gave Lin's uniform number to 'Melo on a videoboard when he visited Houston, had all top executives and key players entertain him Will Dissly Seahawks Jersey , but didn't win him over. Anthony opted to stay with the New York Knicks eventually, with a five-year, 120 million dollars deal.
Then it was Bosh. Everyone was expecting him to accept Houston's offer Friday when came the news that LeBron James had chosen to leave the Miami Heat and return to Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Rockets moved in to swipe the power forward of their dreams from the Heat. They even attached a first-round pick to Lin and agreed to send them to the Lakers, purging Lin's contract from the roster just as they had agreed to ship out Asik's.h But in a dramatic turn of events, Bosh turned around and headed back to Miami, taking a five-year 118 million dollars max offer worth roughly 33 million dollars more than the Rockets could offer over four seasons.
The Rockets was practically left in limbo after all their eyed choices were gone. In an effort to mend the fence Rasheem Green Seahawks Jersey , they scrambled to sign the Washington Wizards free agent Trevor Ariza on Saturday.
Ariza, who played for Houston in 2009 season, agreed to a four-year, 32 million dollars contract to return to Houston, five years after they signed him away in free agency.
A 10-year veteran, Ariza is coming off perhaps his best season Nick Vannett Jersey , averaging 14.4 points for the Wizards, on 45.6 percent shooting and 40.7 percent 3-point shooting. He ranked among the league's top 15 players in 3-pointers made and 3-point shooting percentage and excelled defensively.
He does not, however, replace Bosh, who would have neatly slid in as a perfect fit power forward, in the Rockets' schemes. And Houston fans would not see him as a playmaker to lead the team to their dreamed championships.
On Sunday C. J. Prosise Jersey , Lin's tenure in Houston is officially over. After two seasons that began with enormous hopes and expectations and ended with a diminished and often controversial role coming off the bench, he might be more or less relieved leaving the team.
The Rockets completed their cap-clearing trade of Lin to the Lakers on Sunday, the Lakers announced, with the Rockets sending Lin, a first-round pick and a second round pick to the Lakers.
Lin, four years in NBA Tyler Lockett Jersey , averaged 11.9 points and 4.8 assists in his career. He averaged 12.5 points and 4.1 assists last season, shooting a career best 44.6 percent and 35.8 percent on 3-pointers.
Analysts said Lin will have an easier time in the Lakers. Besides Kobe Bryant, the Lakers began the off season with only Steve Nash and Robert Sacre under contract. Lin could have plenty of opportunities and more fans in his hometown.
The Rockets, meanwhile, are not expected to seek other major free agency moves this summer, looking instead to sign players to short-term contracts in order to keep their cap flexibility for next summer.
