Parsons, along with newly signed Dwight Howard, are in L.A. and are also joined by other teammates to begin their workouts.
“Me and James(Harden) organized it,” Parsons said. “It was actually initially going to be in Orlando. I was hoping to keep some of the young guys there after summer league since they were already here. Once Dwight came, J Lin is out there already. Omri (Casspi) is coming out there. Terrence Jones, Greg Smith, Isaiah (Canaan), so we have a group good of guys. L.A. was more convenient, so I guess I had to travel the longest distance.”
This will also mark the second time that Parsons has appeared on a national show in the last 2 months, as he appeared on the Jim Rome show in early June.
