Spurs talking to Raptors on draft day ?
 
08:06 AM ET 06.22 | Tony Parker may not be around to find out just how slim San Antonio's title chances are. [The Spurs] are engaged in discussions about trading [Parker] to secure a high pick in Thursday's draft, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Spurs have talked to teams in the lottery, including the Toronto Raptors and Sacramento Kings, who hold the fifth and seventh picks, respectively. The Kings are determined to get a frontline point guard, and have also talked with the Denver Nuggets about Raymond Felton. 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.

The Big question : Parker for who ??

Parkers contract is not offset by the 5th round draft pick so it must be Parker + their draft = ??? plus our 5th (Kemba Walker or Brandon Knight - Spur?)

Re: Rockets - Bucks rumours - but so are Raptors
 
Rockets looking to move up.

Fan nation says the bucks at 10 with the Rockets way down in the 20's.

I dont think the Rockets get anything they want at 10 (??)

One of the Euro Centers (K or V) will still be available. One of Brandon Knight or Kemba Walker will be available all of whcih fits the Rockets needs.

More gist suggests Raptors are active in discussing moving down.

Talent wise if you could get a Parker level player at 5 I would be very pleased but he just doesn't fit the timeline of the team. I have no problem taking players that may take a few years to emerge but Parker in contrast may be finished by the time the Raptor's emerge (if at all).

The Raptors should stay away.

Trading youth and draft picks for good veterans is something a good team should do in an attempt to become great. The Raptors are a terrible team and this would merely make them "bad". This would have been a smart move 3 years ago to put someone beside Bosh. Not now.

SA trying to include Richard Jefferson in any trade for Tony Parker. I hope the Raps stay away from this.

Parker makes $50 million over the next 4 seasons. Jefferson makes $30 million over the next 3 seasons.

Both are older and declining veterans that makes too much. I think it's just speculation because the Spurs know they need to get younger and shed some excess salary. They are targeting Valanciunas with supposedly our 5th pick or Sacramento's 7th pick.

I can't see Colangelo making this deal.

How about Calderon, Kleiza and the 5th overall pick for Josh Smith? I like that trade a little bit better.

I'm pretty sure Atlanta doesn't, unfortunately.
I'd like to keep Jose tho, and our biggest need is at C... I wonder what does Dallas want for Haywood.

I still wouldn't do it with Calderon under contract as well.

Which is 22 Million per season over 3 and 4 years

No way SA can move both in one deal; even those two for Barges and Jose is at best a wash in terms of dollars and years.

I would suspect SA is looking to do a Parker and draft for Player and draft. They pick a good pg prospect (Knight / Walker / Jfred??) and try to shed years to maturity on Parkers contract i.e. 2 years instead of 3.

Makes sense for them... us less so.

No need to worry, Raps aren't taking back RJ.

Quote:

ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted earlier that San Antonio wants to attach Richard Jefferson and the $30 million left on his deal into the trade, which would ultimately screw up any opportunity to deal with Toronto or Sacramento. Neither of them would want Jefferson.

I wasn't even worried. Not even Colangelo is that dumb.


....:(

Frankly precludes more than Toronto or Sacramento... i doubt there is any team able to take both contracts Parker and RJ unless they are named Dallas Mavericks or LA Lakers and are willing to pay the luxury tax to win at any cost.
