Spurs guard Tony Parker’s name has been getting thrown around in trade rumors for the last few days, but the 2007 Finals MVP is hoping that he will still be a Spur when the dust settles after draft day. Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears has the report:
Tony Parker says he loves Spurs and wants to finish career with franchise. Says quotes of Spurs on downslide false.
The Spurs have always taken pride in their team’s chemistry, and that chemistry is evident when you see just how badly Parker wants to stay with his team — or avoid being traded to a lottery club. Still, if the Spurs really do want to get younger, they will have to make some tough choices. Trading Parker would be one of those choices.
