As reported by Yahoo! Sports, the San Antonio Spurs are engaged in discussions about trading point guard Tony Parker to secure a high pick in Thursday’s draft.
It’s unclear who the Spurs would prefer to take if they acquired a high lottery pick.
If the Spurs were to trade Parker, George Hill could become their starting point guard.
League sources said Hill also has drawn trade interest from teams willing to give the Spurs a pick near the back-end of the lottery.
Parker didn’t play well early in the Spurs’ first-round loss to the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies in May then later told French reporters he thought the franchise’s days of contending for a title had all but ended, but later retracted his comments.
In all fairness, Parker remains one of the better point guards in the NBA, but he is also the team’s most valuable trade chip. If the Spurs are trying to improve via trade, then Parker could seriously be in the trading block.
Back in May, I wrote some trade scenarios that involves Parker. While some of it looks like a pipe dream or one-sided, it might be worth your time.
If the Spurs will trade Parker, who would you like to get in return? Or are the Spurs better with Parker in the lineup? Share your thoughts.
