Despite playing in just 61 games last season, the Memphis Grizzlies signed Chandler Parsons to a huge 4-year, $95 million deal. Memphis will finally get a chance to see its prized free agent acquisition in action as he is set to make his season debut against Portland today.
Parsons has been recovering from a knee injury that ended his 2015-16 season in March.
