As reported by BasketEurope, in an interview released at L’Equipe, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker said that in the next days he will meet with his lawyers to study the possibilities to join ASVEL during the NBA lockout.
“In the next days I will meet my lawyers and we will see how my chances are of returning to Europe. Insurance companies are happy because no NBA player got injured during Eurobasket so they are not going to raise the prices. I hope I can negotiate a good price. For sure, If I sign with ASVEL, I am going to pay by my own the cost of the insurance” said Parker.
Meanwhile, Parker’s backcourt buddy in San Antonio, Manu Ginobili has an offer to rejoin Virtus Bologna of the Italian League, but his agent, Herb Rudoy, reiterated on Thursday that Ginobili has made no decision about the Virtus offer, even after the NBA has announced that training camp will be postponed indefinitely.
