San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker has spent his entire 13-year career in the Alamo. If he has his way, he’ll continue to do so as the Belgium native recently told MySanAntonio.com that he wants a contract extension when his current deal is up:

Parker made it clear though, his first choice it to remain in San Antonio as long as he could.

“If I can yeah”, Parker told the San Antonio Express-News. “The history here, they always take care of the guys. They did it with [Tim Duncan] and Manu [Ginobili], so hopefully they take care of me. At the end of this year they have to guarantee my year after, so, technically, maybe, I’ll be a free agent this summer.”

Rumors leaked last week that the New York Knicks were interested in signing Tony Parker once he become a free agent after the ’14-15 season but the point guard essentially squashed any suggestion he’d like to play elsewhere with his comments.

Parker’s will make $12.5 million dollars next season before his contract expires.
