Chandler Parsons and Dwight Howard have recently rekindled their friendship.
Parsons played a big role in recruiting Howard to the Houston Rockets in 2013 before he signed with the Dallas Mavericks in 2014.
Parsons plans on helping the Mavericks with their recruiting efforts for Howard.
“For sure,” Parsons said. “I’m talking to him (routinely), obviously, and we share the same agent with Dan Fegan … Obviously I have a really close relationship with Dwight and one year wasn’t enough playing with him in Houston. I was a big reason why he went there, so I’ll have to revisit that when the time is appropriate. The relationship I had with him, and making him feel comfortable, that was big (in Houston).
“We still talk all the time … We’re friends, on and off the court. And I don’t just do it because he’s a free agent. It’s just a relationship we’ve built over the years. He still has a lot left in the tank. You look at the playoffs last year, and he was dominant … When he’s healthy he can go, and he’s one of the most dominant players in the league, so I’m a big fan of his game.”
