Chandler Parsons is motivated to win a championship, but he knows his young Houston Rockets team could use some more size and experience to reach that level.
After watching the Miami Heat hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy this week, he sent a simple text message to Dwight Howard, one of the biggest free-agents this offseason.
"'Come to Houston. That could be us,'" Parson said, according to the Houston Chronicle.
But that wasn't the first time he has reached out to the Los Angeles Lakers big man. Parsons has apparently been doing his share of recruiting Howard to Houston.
"I talk to Dwight every day," Parsons told the Houston Chronicle. "I've created a relationship with him, where I feel like we're very close.
Howard has several teams vying in his services, but hasn't announced any favorites yet.
However, he's been listening to Parson's pitch and seems to be interested in what the Rockets have to offer.
