Could Spurs Trade Tony Parker?

Sources with knowledge of the team’s thinking say the Spurs are increasingly optimistic about their ability to inject their front line with some new blood by convincing Brazilian forward Tiago Splitter — whom they drafted in 2007 — to leave the European game to come to the NBA starting next season. Yet it remains to be seen how aggressive San Antonio feels it’ll have to be about reshaping the rest of the roster after Jefferson’s season of struggle, with Parker — unpalatable as it sounds — ranking as its best trade asset. The Frenchman has only one season left on his contract ($13.5 million) after this season and, according to a recent report in the San Antonio Express-News, has told friends that he’s unsure about his future in town after the contract extension recently bestowed upon Ginobili and with second-year guard George Hill capable of playing the same position.
