Tony Parker said that he harbors no concerns about his future role with the Spurs.
"We talked about it all year long," Parker said. "I am fine with [a changing role], and going forward it’s going to be like that. As long as [Gregg Popovich] is happy, I’m good." The Spurs might look to upgrade the point guard position this summer and they have been linked to Mike Conley, so Parker could be looking at a much smaller role next season. Jun 17 - 10:16 AM

Tony Parker said that the Zika virus will not keep him from suiting up for Team France at the 2016 Olympic Games.

Parker also stated that 2016 will be his final run with the French National Team, which makes a ton of sense given that he's 34 years old and did not play very well at all during his 2015-16 campaign. He's not going to be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues next season.

Tony Parker said he would like to work in an NBA front office when he retires.

Though Parker is thought to be a good coaching candidate once he retires, Parker said he would rather be a general manager. "The best thing was to be in the office every day during the [2011 NBA] lockout and see the everyday operations," Parker said. "I looked at everything. How to manage a team, marketing, ticket sales, sponsors. It was a great learning experience for me. It’s getting me ready to work in an NBA front office." The 34-year-old is under contract with the Spurs for two more seasons, but his fantasy prospects for the 2016-17 season aren't very appealing.
Jun 2 - 10:21 AM

Tony Parker was held to just six points in Game 6 on Thursday, adding three assists, one rebound and one steal in 23 minutes.

This was arguably the worst game of his postseason and it came at the worst possible time. Even when the Spurs came back to life in the fourth quarter, coach Gregg Popovich went with Andre Miller down the stretch instead. Parker is under contract with the Spurs for a couple more seasons, but San Antonio will likely continue to limit his minutes and Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that the Spurs will pursue Mike Conley this summer as well. Parker's fantasy outlook for the 2016-17 season isn't looking promising.
May 12 - 11:37 PM

Tony Parker struggled in Game 5 on Tuesday, scoring nine points with five assists, four boards, one block and one steal in 32 minutes.

It looked like Parker had turned back the clock with 19 points in Game 3 and 22 points in Game 4, but he was quiet tonight. He appeared to tweak his hip in the opening moments of the game and went to the bench in obvious pain, but he quickly returned and was moving fine the rest of the night. He also got into a bit of foul trouble and he couldn't stop Russell Westbrook after the half, so this was a night to forget for Parker. He should be much better in Thursday's must-win Game 6 in OKC.
May 10 - 11:41 PM

Tony Parker was aggressive during Sunday's Game 4 loss in OKC, hitting 10-of-16 shots to finish with 22 points, three assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

Parker's attacking mentality set the tone for San Antonio early, and he took more than half of his shots within 10 feet of the hoop. The Spurs scored more points in the paint in the first half (32) than they had in the entirety of Game 3, but they were doomed by barren scoring from the perimeter (2-of-12 as a team). Parker appeared to injure his left leg late in the game, but he didn't miss any time and should be ready to go for Game 5.
May 8 - 10:54 PM

Tony Parker insisted that he has accepted his diminished offensive role with grace.

"I have a great life. I can’t complain. I love my team. I love my teammates. I have no problem. I don’t know why everybody keeps asking me [about] that. I feel great," Parker said. "...I trust Kawhi [Leonard] and LaMarcus [Aldridge] to have big games." Parker has taken a backseat on offense all season, but he was very aggressive in Game 3 with 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three treys in 35 minutes. The Spurs are even deadlier when Parker is in attack mode, so maybe he can keep it going in Game 4 on Sunday.
May 7 - 9:40 AM

Tony Parker scored a postseason-high 19 points against the Thunder on Friday, adding eight rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He scored just nine points in the first two games against OKC in this round. Before this game, Parker made just 40.0 percent from the field in this postseason with only one 3-pointer, so this was clearly his best offensive game. Plus, his minutes were also a season high. He looks like he's an option in DFS again.
May 7 - 12:28 AM

Tony Parker said that he wants to play until he's 38 years old.

"I will definitely not go to 40 [like Tim Duncan]," said Parker. "20 seasons will be enough." If Parker is able to meet his goal, that will give him another five years in the league. However, Parker only managed to put up 14th round value in standard 9-cat leagues this season, and his numbers will only continue to get worse as the years go on. He won't be a great standard league target next season.
Apr 28 - 2:10 PM

Tony Parker carved through the Grizzlies' defense on Sunday for 15 points (6-of-10 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with six assists and one rebound in just 21 minutes of action.

Parker took advantage of the Grizzlies' lack of shot-blockers by attacking the paint all game long, while dishing his most assists in the past three weeks. He passed Steve Nash and Larry Bird for fifth place in career assists in the postseason, and his strong Game 1 bodes well for the Spurs as they pursue their sixth championship in franchise history.
Apr 17 - 10:39 PM

Tony Parker (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. Dallas.

With Parker unavailable, Andre Miller will likely earn another start with Patty Mills logging some extended minutes off the bench. Both those guys are on the radar as potential punt plays in DFS, with Mills offering a bit more upside.
Apr 13 - 12:53 PM

Tony Parker scored 20 points in 37 minutes in Tuesday's 102-98 overtime win over the Thunder, but he's fully expected to rest on Wednesday vs. Dallas.

The Spurs have the No. 2 seed in the West locked up and will rest their starters for the last game of the season. Parker looked great tonight which is an awesome sign for the Spurs as they get ready for a lengthy playoff run. He added three assists, one board and three steals in the win. Expect Patty Mills and Andre Miller to pick up the slack on Wednesday, with Mills being the better option in fantasy.
Apr 12 - 11:42 PM

Gregg Popovich said that he will not be resting any of his starters for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

While Manu Ginobili (rest) and Boris Diaw (groin) are set to spend Tuesday's game on the sidelines, the rest of the guys will all be available. Owners of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green and LaMarcus Aldridge can deploy those guys with confidence. Popovich did say the older guys that play tonight will likely be rested on Wednesday, so this will more than likely be the final regular season game for Parker and Duncan.

Tony Parker finished Sunday's game with just four points, four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 29 minutes, shooting 2-of-7 from the field without any free throws.

Parker rested on Friday but it didn't help him snap out of his shooting slump, as he's a combined 14-of-42 from the field in his past five games. He couldn't stop Stephen Curry after the first quarter and failed to put much pressure on the Warriors' defense, all of which fed into the Spurs' first home loss of the season.
Apr 10 - 9:41 PM

Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, David West and LaMarcus Aldridge are starting vs. the Warriors on Sunday.

Tim Duncan (rest) and Boris Diaw (groin) are both out, but the Spurs will be close to full strength as they try to protect their unbeaten streak at home this season.
