Houston Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley will be a restricted free agent this summer, and if Chandler Parsons has it his way, Beverley will exit Houston the same way Parsons did.
Parsons reportedly has already started recruiting Beverley, and may have leverage after James Harden voiced his wish to play alongside another playmaker.
The Mavericks desperately needs perimeter defenders and Parsons could make that happen.
With Pat Beverley heading into free agency, the Rockets point guard said he is already seeing the renowned recruiting talents of former teammate Chandler Parsons first hand.
“I hear from Chandler every day,” Beverley said. “It’s hard, but I try not to think about it. I can’t talk about contracts. It’s going to be a fun summer. I have put myself in a position to be set for life and that’s something that I never thought was possible growing up.”
Like Parsons last summer, Beverley will be a restricted free agent, giving the Rockets the opportunity to match any contract offer sheet he signs. But Beverley said he hopes to be back with the Rockets.
