The Spurs have always been able to land good players through the draft and solid players from free agency but the free agents mostly come here because they think they have a good shot at a ring. That's not the case anymore unless our GM can really talk a player into coming here like Duncan being a true role player who will rebound and defend.
If we can get a scoring big man, then I think we are right back in it. Duncan will only need to focus on defense and rebounding. It would be awesome if we can bring in a guy like Randolph. That would pretty much put us right back into contention and give us front court depth in length and ability.
Make it happen!!
would you do this to make it happen??
The San Antonio Spurs have talked to multiple lottery teams about trading Tony Parker in exchange for a high first-round pick in Thursday's draft, league sources told Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday.
According to Yahoo, the Spurs have had Parker-related discussions with the Toronto Raptors (No. 5) and Sacramento Kings (No. 7) about their lottery selections.
The Kings, who started Beno Udrih at point guard for a majority of the 2010-11 season, appear determined to add a front-line floor general. Sources told ESPN.com's Chad Ford that the Kings have also contacted the Denver Nuggets about Raymond Felton.
A Parker trade would shift George Hill into the starting roll, but sources also told Yahoo that there are teams at the end of the first round interested in Hill.
Parker told French reporters last month that he thought the Spurs' chances at a title had ended. Parker later backed off those comments, saying the reporters got carried away with his remarks.
Parker was equally candid about San Antonio's diminishing title hopes in training camp last October. He said then that he felt the upcoming season was the last chance for the Spurs to win a fifth championship in the Duncan era, again pointing toward the team's aging core.
