Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard doesn’t think the departure of Chandler Parsons will hurt the teams title hopes next season. “It won’t affect us at all,” Howard said Friday, according to the Associated Press. Parsons, a three-year starter in Houston, signed a three-year, $45 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks. “We have myself and James,” Howard said. “We have the best center and the best two guard in the game on the same team. It’s on us.” The Rockets lost Parsons, Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin and Omri Casspi this offseason, but did acquire veteran forward Trevor Ariza in a three-team trade. “He’ll go through a wall for you,” Howard said of Ariza. “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.” The post Dwight Howard: Chandler Parsons departure won’t affect Rockets appeared first on Sports Glory.
