It looks like the Memphis Grizzlies have just found their newest small forward in Chandler Parsons. The former member of the Dallas Mavericks just finalized a deal with his new team for max-money and it seems both sides are thrilled with the result.

Parsons has trouble fighting through an injury-riddled season in 2015-16 but looks to bounce back in a major way in Memphis. Parsons was the biggest small forward on the free agent market after Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant. The deal comes as a bit of a surprise to some as the 27-year-old forward was not expected to have mud interest in Memphis before free agency began.
The Grizzlies can now focus their attention on retaining point guard Mike Conley as they work to build toward another playoff run in 2016-17.
