The Chandler Parsons era in Memphis just keeps on getting worse.
After signing a four-year, $94.5 million max contract with the Grizzlies in the summer of 2016, Parsons has played just a combined 73 games with the team in over two seasons. He's also currently a healthy inactive for Memphis, which solidifies his status as one of the biggest free agent busts in NBA history.

Parsons was seen as one of the top free agents at the time after playing five impressive seasons with the Houston Rockets and the Dallas Mavericks. The forward averaged roughly 14 points per game during those years in the Lone Star State, but ever since he arrived in Memphis, he just hasn't been able to stay on the court.
In his first season with the Grizzlies, he played in only 34 games due to a knee injury and only logged 36 the year after dealing with the same issue. He's averaged just 7.0 points and 2.4 rebounds per game in limited action with the Grizz.
The Grizzlies seem to have given up hope regarding any positive contribution from Parsons. Despite having one more year left on his max contract, it seems highly unlikely that he'll be in Memphis next season.
