Rockets buy back 38th pick, take Florida's Parsons

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Rockets reacquired the 38th overall pick from Minnesota for cash and drafted Florida forward Chandler Parsons.
The Rockets initially dealt the 38th pick to the Timberwolves as part of a proposed deal that sent the 23rd pick, a future first-round pick and center Brad Miller to Minnesota for 7-foot Lithuanian Donatas Motiejunas and point guard Jonny Flynn.
The 6-foot-9 Parsons averaged 11.3 points and 7.8 rebounds in 36 games for the Gators last season.
Earlier, the Rockets used the 14th overall pick to take Kansas forward Marcus Morris.
