HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – The new-look Houston Rockets could begin practicing together as early as next week, according to Chandler Parsons.  In an interview with NBA TV, Parsons disclosed that the Rockets players were planning an informal mini-camp next week to get acquainted and get an early jump on practicing.

“That’s one thing about our team.  We are a very close-knit team.  We talk pretty much every other day.  I’m going to Houston tomorrow for Dwight’s press conference but then we are all going to L.A.  Like nine or ten of us are going to L.A. and holding a little mini-camp together.  We’ll all get together for the first time next week so it should be fun,” Parsons told NBA TV Wednesday.

Parsons, who needs no introduction to Howard, says he was in touch with the latest Rocket addition daily while he decided where to play next.

“Being from Orlando, I have known Dwight for a long time now so I had a relationship for him.  I talked with him pretty much everyday.  Just any question he had, I had answers for.  (I) reminded him how good we could be in Houston with our nucleus adding him,” said Parsons.

“He’s the best center in the NBA and now he’s got a chance to come to Houston with not too much pressure and a great core around him just to block out everything else and win games.”
