Parker not opposed to leaving Spurs

big threeNow that the smoke has cleared and the draft is over, San Antonio Spurs’ point-guard, Tony Parker, is talking about possibly not being a Spur after next year.

According to L’Equipe’s translation, Parker said I talked with Pop, he told me that I’m not going anywhere. New York and Portland were the two most serious options, but San Antonio has said no. And I love the club. I want to stay for the last year of contract to play with Tim and Manu and then be a free agent.”

Parker went on to say that after next year, he will have been in San Antonio for ten years and thinks he can dedicate another eight or nine to another team.

Don’t be surprised if extension talks never begin with Parker. If he does end up leaving, will the front office regret not trading him on draft day?
