DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Could Chandler Parsons find his way back to Dallas? According to 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher, the Mavs are open to it.

In a report from The Athletic, the Memphis Grizzlies are exploring the possibility of moving the No. 4 overall pick as long as Parsons and his massive contract were attached to the deal.

A source close to Fish says Dallas is willing to take on Parsons and the final two years of his deal that pays him $49.2 million if Memphis is serious about making such a trade. 

Fish reports that Dallas would start the negotiation with a suggestion that they take back "future nothingness." That isn't likely to be enough, however, so they would have to offer the services of Wesley Matthews and/or Dwight Powell. In addition to those players, Dallas could also offer a future protected first-round pick. 

Fish also adds that the Mavericks would not be willing to offer Harrison Barnes in such a trade.
