“His game has grown a lot,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said while praising Parsons’ versatility in his first season with the team. “He’s not only a shooter and a scorer, but he’s a playmaker. He’s a defender and a rebounder. He’s one of our best all-around players. As the season went on, his responsibilities grew. And they will continue to grow going forward.
