Dwight Howard believes that Chandler Parsons’ departure from the Houston Rockets will not have a major impact on the team next season.
“It won’t affect us at all,” Howard said. “We have myself and James. We have the best center and the best two guard in the game on the same team. It’s on us.”
Parsons spent three years as the Rockets’ starter at small forward. He signed a three-year, $46 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks.
Howard praised the Rockets’ addition of Trevor Ariza.
“He’ll go through a wall for you,” Howard said of Ariza, who was his teammate on the Orlando Magic. “Just to have soldiers on your team like that is great. We have that one-two punch with me and James. We’re filling out our roster with guys who are willing to go through that wall and doing whatever it takes to win.”
