The San Antonio Spurs are engaged in discussions about trading point guard Tony Parker(notes) to secure a high pick in Thursdayís 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(notes).

Itís unclear who the Spurs would prefer to take if they acquired a high lottery pick.

If the Spurs were to trade Parker, George Hill(notes) 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.

Parker didnít play well early in the Spursí first-round loss to the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies in May then later told French reporters he thought the franchiseís days of contending for a title had all but ended.

Very interesting. Detroit makes no sense. Kings don't need another scoring PG.
Maybe Charlotte? Not sure he'd help Toronto but with Parker locked up, at least they know he wouldn't go anywhere.

I'd guess the Spurs would take Jonas V.

Thornton is barely 6'3, he's not playing SF. If anything Reke would move to SF, which is not ideal. It would also give the Kings three scoring guards in Parker, Evans, and Thornton, with only one of them being a good shooter.

Not exactly. Doesn't make sense to have a younger PG like Hill coming off the bench. They have a trade piece in Parker that could make them younger and compete in the post-Duncan era.

They might be a year or two too late on moving Parker. I don't think this is rebuilding - I think this is identifying needs and flipping some depth. Parker has never been that great of a basketball player, and he'll age poorly based on his only really plus skill (quickness).

No, he's just another scoring guard. Two is enough with Reke and Thornton. Beno Udrih is still there as well, and he's a solid offensive player. I want Kawhi Leonard at 7. The Kings need a SF in the worst way and need perimeter defense.

George Hill regressed as a PG. He struggled even in his role as a backup. His regression as a PG is the reason why Gary Neal emerged off the bench as the Spurs 3rd guard this past season.

Hill is still nothing more than a Combo Guard who excelled when he was playing off the ball. Spurs would be smart to move Hill instead while his value is still high.

Enes Kanter makes the most logical sense. If he is there at #5, the Spurs should pull the trigger on a Parker for Calderon swap.

If Kanter lives up to the Horford comparisons, it will take pressure off of Duncan having to anchor their frontcourt.

Did you watch any Spurs games this year? He did the opposite of regress? Hense why in the Yahoo report it says the Spurs could also get a pick at the back end of the lottery for Hill.

And Gary Neal emerged when Parker went down with the injury and he became the first guard off the bench. He never passed Hill on the depth chart this season.

How did Parker not play well in the first round? He averaged 19.7ppg 46% shooting and 5.2 assists. That's pretty good.

He played very poorly in the first few games, picked it up later. He still struggled with turnovers though (as did everyone else on the Spurs).


I'm just curious about who the Spurs want, nobody comes to mind.

That's what I'm thinking. To offer Parker they would have to have someone specific in mind, but I don't see anywhere at the rumored 5/7 spots that would immediately improve their chances of winning.

There's also this little bit of how Gary Neal isn't a point guard. He's a shooting guard, mostly 3 point specialist with a pretty average finishing ability.

I give this a 20% chance of actually happening. This isn't the kind of thing the Spurs normally do, but the Spurs aren't in their normal position right now. Still wouldn't bet on it happening.

I'll believe it when i see it. How often does what the spurs do get released publicly? they seem to always make a move that no one really sees coming. Even if they are moving TP (which I would really hope is for a big man) then I would think it's for more than just a higher draft pick. Like Favors + Utah's pick (I know this is not gonna happen just an example) but hoping something along those lines.

Parker is also a pretty good play maker. He is one of the best at driving and dishing. He's not just some pg who only scores. His assists would be a lot higher if guys like Jefferson had hit their shots

I was going to shoot this down, but then I remembered the beginning of the season when guys like Bonner, RJ, and Ginobili were hitting 3's all the time. Parker was averaging around 8 assists a game then. He's definitely at his best when he's surrounded by shooters that he trusts.

No one really else outside of that I would want to see Parker traded for personally, unless the team added a good player with the pick.

I can only hope they plan to get more than just a draft pick for TP. Like a big + draft. I think (if these rumors are true) they might be sold on having Hill run the team as well as Manu. They should be able to get more than draft pick for him. The spurs always seem to make the move you dont see coming, so hopefully they make some magic of this situation.

I dont see them moving manu + i dont see johnson fitting their system. I think tony must want out if these rumors are true, especially considering his statement saying their window has closed. that seemed to have bothered management and pop a little apparently. they'll make something work that we wont see coming, and it'll all kind of make sense. they've proven (except with rj) that they usually make the right move.

Because Joe Johnson isn't worth his contract, and trading Tony Parker creates financial flexibility for the upcoming seasons (and that big 2012 free agent class). They aren't moving Manu anyways. He's too old to get someone that would improve the team at this point. They're better off keeping him, because he is their best player and loved by the fans.

Hill isnt a PG, and cant run the pick and roll to save his life and thats 90% of our offense. I don't think Hill will be anything more then a 15-16 PPG guy..and were stacked at SG as it is.

I agree 100% but it just seems like Hill is a Pop kind of guy and Parker isn't. Parker is the only Spur in recent memory that keeps popping his head in the news off the court and I know Pop hates that.

Manu/Neal/Anderson

If we could turn him into a lotto big man, I would be for it.

Still pray we dont trade Parker unless we get something damn good for him. Not all that excited about many prospects

How is Hill defensively?

Hill would only go for a late lotto pick, I don't think it's worth moving him for what's available there.

I think if we were able to snag Chris Singleton it would be worth it.

The plan is obvious. Trade Parker and hopefully Jefferson.

Free up cap space and grab Jonas Valanciunas and bring him over next year.

Sac and Tor can both take on salary without needing matching salaries.

Then they would use the cap space... About 20 mil between Parker and Jefferson... to sign FA to make a run this yr

Obviously they wont free up all 20 mil bc they are gonna get some players in the deal, but still...

This move make sense both short and long-term.

Spurs fans should hope this happens. Period.

I hope if the spurs offered the jazz hill for the #12 they would take it

Ric Bucher said the Spurs are targeting Klay Thompson on Sportscenter. I think he's full of crap to be honest. I don't think anyone but the Spurs know who they're after.

He sucks at guarding the pick and roll. If someone is trying to go 1 on 1 though I'd say he's above average because hes very quick, and extremely long arms for his height.

He would be future SG, but Im not sure why either. Unless the Spurs have no faith in Anderson, or plan on using him at SF like they were doing this past year.

Still prefer to get a big man or Chris Singleton if we were to trade Hill.
