Western Notes: Parsons, Speights, Miller, Harris

It’s a long shot, but it’s possible that Chandler Parsons returns to play this season, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban revealed Wednesday, according to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News. “If we make a run and get to the second round [of the playoffs], there’s a chance,” Cuban said. The team’s press release that followed the right knee surgery Parsons had last week referred to the procedure as a season-ender, but Chandler shared Cuban’s optimism Wednesday, saying on the team’s television broadcast of Wednesday’s victory over the Knicks that rehab will be a “piece of cake,” as Townsend also relays.  Parsons said he’d be in a brace for two or three weeks and made reference to a four-to-six week timetable for his recovery. Still, he laughed when told of Cuban’s remark and said he wouldn’t count on his return at any point in the playoffs, Townsend tweets.

    Strange comments by Miller. Not sure what he expected when he signed with the Wolves. It was pretty well-established that he was supposed to be a veteran voice to the young guys, and I think it was fairly obviously they weren’t built to contend for a title this season.

      And the Wolves certainly have goals. They’re just not immediate. Their goals are to develop their young talent so they can develop into a playoff contender in a year or two. The goals just didn’t fit Miller’s timeline.
