On Saturday morning the San Antonio Spurs announced that they have signed point guard Tony Parker to a multi-year contract extension. Link
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Time to be real -this is a surprise.
It seemed unlikely Tony Parker and the San Antonio Spurs would renew their relationship with an extension.
The Spurs have third-year point guard George Hill waiting in the wings; Parker has struggled with injuries; both team and player had hinted at changing directions because their days as a semi-dynasty are over.
Parker, however, is still relatively young. If healthy, he can regain his form as a top point guard and clutch performer.
Also, Parker was likely leery of becoming a free agent next July under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. He probably gave the Spurs a discount.
Depending on the money, term, and circumstances, an extension may work out for TP and the Spurs.
