Did Mark Cuban Tell Chandler Parsons To Stay Away From Team U.S.A.?

Mark Cuban

Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks owner, is not happy about giving up players for international games. He has expressed his views plainly. Although according to an NBA agreement with FIBA, a team owner and a coach can only prevent a player from participating in the World Cup if there is “a reasonable medical concern.”

Chandler Parsons tried out for the team and got cut, but there seems to be some ambiguity in Cuban’s reported conversations with Chandler. Since Parsons went ahead with the try-outs, not one can accuse of Cuban having been successful in preventing a player from joining team USA, but there seems to be a warning for him in store if it is perceived that he attempted to put pressure on Parsons.

“I can’t stop him, ” Cuban said in an email. “It’s his decision but he knows how I feel.”

Parsons said, “He (Cuban) made it clear to me He obviously told me how he felt. But at the same time, he understood it was something I was really passionate about and it was something I really wanted to do.”

There doesn’t appear to be any wrongdoing here, but perhaps Cuban and others who don’t like sending players to international games should be careful about putting pressure on or the perception of pressure.
