Two teams not named the Spurs aggressively pursuing Tony Parker
Currently a free agent, multiple NBA teams have expressed interest in the 36 year-old point guard.
Parker’s gonna be an interesting one because they’re trying to figure out in San Antonio what they’re doing. Can he sit around and wait for that? There is some money — Charlotte’s got some interest in him, Denver might have a little interest. Now Denver, they’re looking for a backup point guard so that might be a veteran — minimum guy, but Charlotte has an exception. They’ve got some money, and James Borrego, the new Charlotte coach, coached him with the Spurs. And there’s others. There’s not a team in the league who wouldn’t love to have Tony as a backup.
Watching Parker play last season I wondered just how much he has left in the tank–he averaged career-low’s in points, rebounds, assists, steals, minutes and three-point percentage. That’s a long list, but for a backup point guard, Parker brings a lot more than his play on the court to any team.
It’s hard to imagine him not on the Spurs, but it seems more likely that we could see Parker in a different uniform next season, the first non-Spurs uniform in his 17-year NBA career.
UPDATE: Parker has signed a two-year $10 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/two-teams-not-named-the-spurs-aggressively-pursuing-tony-parker/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Tony-Parker.jpg?fit=1024%2C563&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Tony-Parker.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Charlotte HornetsDenver NuggetsNBANorthwest DivisionRecent PostsSan Antonio SpursSoutheast DivisionSouthwest DivisionCharlotte Hornets,Denver Nuggets,NBA,San Antonio Spurs,Tony ParkerTony Parker will always be considered an all-time great as a member of the San Antonio Spurs.
