NBA Rumors: Tony Parker wants to play 5-6 more years, join Asvel


There have been rumors that San Antonio Spurs’ point guard Tony Parker could be hanging up his sneakers in the next few years.

At 31 years old, Parker has won titles and was even named MVP of the NBA Finals.

Now that he has bought the top club in France, Asvel, there has been speculation that he would turn his attention there.

However, Parker says that is not true.

“I want to play another 5 or 6 years NBA and then I will make my last season with Asvel,” Parker told Leprogres.fr via Google translate.

Parker is still playing at a very high level and is on one of the league’s elite teams. The Spurs, who were mere seconds away from hoisting the trophy last year during Game 6 of the NBA Finals before eventually losing to the Miami Heat in seven games, have a 51-16 record this season, which is the best in the NBA.

They should again be considered one of the favorites.

Parker is averaging 17.6 points, 6.1 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game this season.
