Default Maccabi Tel Aviv Wants to Bringing Parker back !

Pini Gershon has asked Maccabi Tel Aviv's management to do its utmost to bring back one of its biggest stars, Anthony Parker.

The 1.98 meter small forward, who currently plays for the NBA's Toronto Raptors and averages 10.95 points a game, has said in the past that he is very fond of the team, which he led to repeated success in Europe under the tutelage of Pini Gershon.

Maccabi Tel Aviv officials have already opened talks with Parker over the possibility of his possible return to Tel Aviv.

However, sources say the forward is unlikely to make a comeback at the Nokia Stadium because of his commitment to the Toronto Raptors franchise.

Wow ........

He'll go back once his contract is up.

Yea, he's done with the NBA after this season IMO. He'll get more money there and with the shorter seasons, it'll be less wear and tear on his body.

I expect that he is done with Europe and will sign one more NBA contract and that will be it.

Parker inquired aboot buying out the final year of his contract during the summer so he could return to Maccabi. He was willing to use his own money, but the Raps refused to let him out of his deal because of the team's lack of depth.

I can't see him signing a new NBA contract, especially after the dreg this season is shaping up to be. Obviously his second go around in the league hasn't turned out to be what he hoped for - to me it seems like he's gotten old pretty quick going up against elite athletes for the first time in years, especially being the only guy on an entire roster who's capable or even mildly interested in playing perimeter defense.

It's unfortunate that a guy who could be an excellent role player on a contender had to come to a team that wasn't quite ready.
