Dwight Howard: 'Chandler Parsons exit won't affect Houston Rockets'

Houston Rockets guard Dwight Howard insists that Chandler Parsons's exit from the team will not affect their chances of winning the NBA title.

Dwight Howard has insisted that losing Chandler Parsons will not affect the Houston Rockets' title chances.

The small forward agreed a three-year deal worth a reported $45m (£26.3m) with the Dallas Mavericks earlier this month, ending his three-season spell with the Rockets.

Howard told The AP: "It won't affect us at all. We have myself and James [Harden]. We have the best center and the best two guard in the game on the same team. It's on us."

Parsons averaged 16.6 points per game in 74 appearances for Houston during the 2013-14 season, rising to 19.3 during the playoffs.
