Rockets plan to match Parsons offer news services

A source told earlier Friday that the Houston Rockets intended to match the Dallas Mavericks' three-year, $46 million offer sheet to restricted free agent Chandler Parsons after signing Chris Bosh.

However, Bosh is now expected to re-sign with the Miami Heat, throwing the Rockets' plans up in the air.

Houston has until 11:59 p.m. Sunday to match the Mavs' offer to Parsons, who currently accounts for a $2.9 million hold on the Rockets' cap. The Rockets can exceed the cap to keep Parsons.

The Parsons offer sheet, which starts with a $14.7 million salary, accounts for the rest of the Mavs' cap space after the soon-to-be-official deals for Dirk Nowitzki and Devin Harris are done.
