Tony Parker said that he will take steps to avoid injuries this season.
"I just want to feel good," Parker said. "My only goal this year is to be healthy, because I know if I’m healthy I’ll play well." Parker averaged just 14.4 points and 4.9 assists last season in 68 appearances, but he is hoping that his new stretching regimen before practices and games will help him fend off injuries. Parker also struggled during the Eurobasket this summer, so he will need to have a strong preseason before we could recommend taking a flier on him before the later rounds. Oct 2 - 10:39 AM

Tony Parker said that physically he felt great during the EuroBasket tournament, but he just didn't make shots.

Parker has continually downplayed his less-than-stellar performance from the EuroBasket tournament, but it's fair to wonder if all the deep playoff runs have caught up to the 33-year-old who shot just 34.3 percent from the field in Europe. He was barely worth owning last season, averaging 14.4 points and 4.9 assists through 68 games, so he's not worth much more than a late-round flier on draft day.

Tony Parker helped Team France to a bronze medal finish on Sunday, scoring 13 points (3-of-12 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs) to go with four assists, two rebounds, one steal and three turnovers over 32 minutes.

After the match Parker and Nicolas Batum addressed the crowd, saying neither had the intention of leaving the French National Team. France did not qualify for the 2016 Olympics during the EuroBasket tournament due to their third place finish, so they will now have to earn their spot through a smaller Olympic qualifying tournament. Parker had a rough going at the tournament, shooting a horrific 34.3 percent from the field, and he was often outplayed by fellow Frenchmen Nando De Colo. Given Parkers' decline over the years, it’s tough to justify taking him any earlier than the final few rounds on draft day.

Tony Parker's struggles continued on Thursday as he shot just 4-of-17 from the field during an overtime loss to Spain, scoring 10 points to go with six assists, four boards, and three turnovers.

Parker has really struggled to get his shot to drop for Team France over the past four games, shooting a combined 11-of-47 from the field during that span, including an 0-of-5 shooting performance. While Parker has shrugged his poor shooting off as nothing more than a bit of a cold-streak, one has to wonder if all those deep playoff runs are finally catching up with him. His performance at the EuroBasket tournament has been far from inspiring, and at 33 years old with a number of rest days coming his way, it's hard to justify him as anything more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.

Tony Parker said he's not worried about his struggles at EuroBasket.

While Parker has played poorly during the tournament, the 33-year-old said he's not all that concerned. "That France wins, that’s the most important, not that I play well," Parker said prior. "I do not think about [how I’m playing]. I think about what I need to do for the team. I will not force. We’ll see how the game goes, and if the defense always focuses on me, I’ll have to be smart and find open players. Do not worry, all is well with me." While Parker isn't worried, fantasy owners should be. His play dipped last year as he was limited to 68 games due to injury and he's nothing more than a late-round target in standard leagues at this point.

Tony Parker was not very efficient during France's win over Latvia on Tuesday, shooting 5-of-17 from the field for 18 points to go with six assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, one rebound and three turnovers through 30 minutes of action.

Parker is now shooting just 38.0 percent from the field through the EuroBasket tournament thus far, although he doesn't seem to be very concerned as he was quoted before the game saying everything is fine with him, and he's simply not looking to force the offense. The 33-year-old averaged 14.4 points, 4.9 assists and 1.3 three-pointers per game with the Spurs last season, although various rest days and a troublesome hamstring injury limited him to just 68 games. He can't be viewed as anything more than a late-round target in standard leagues.

Tony Parker is averaging only 11.2 points on 40.3 percent shooting during EuroBasket 2015, but he downplayed the importance of his offense for France.

"Do not worry, everything is fine with me. I will not force [the offense]," said Parker, who has been the focal point of opposing defenses. "I'm not here to try to score 30 points per game." Backup PG Nando De Colo has averaged 12.2 points on 54.2 percent shooting for the French team, while chipping in 1.7 threes, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals, earning nearly as much playing time as Parker. The Spurs' veteran is on the downside of his career but he's still a reasonable target in the final rounds.

Tony Parker became the all-time leading scorer in EuroBasket history on Monday, finishing with 16 points, one rebound and three assists in a win over Poland.

He's played a ton of international ball for France and set the record with his 1,032nd point. Parker has played over 32,000 minutes in the NBA since 2001, but he still has a little left in the tank at age 33. He'll slide in drafts and you could do worse after pick 100.
Sep 7 - 5:24 PM

Tony Parker finished Sunday's victory with 11 points and five assists in 20 minutes, in the process tying the EuroBasket record for career scoring.

Parker looked great throughout Sunday's game, spinning past defenders and driving into the paint with ease. Prospective fantasy owners should be hoping that Parker's playing time continues to be held in check, however, as he's been the victim of fatigue and precautionary rest in recent seasons.
Sep 6 - 4:43 PM

Tony Parker said that he is motivated to play for France during Eurobasket.

"My idol was Michael Jordan," Parker said. "He was always motivated to get better. Lots of people have asked me, 'Tony, why do you continue to play for the French national team? There's nothing to prove.' But I'm motivated, to play as long as possible, to use my talents for as long as possible and to push my limits." Parker is expected to retire from the French national team after the 2016 Olympics, so hopefully that will extend his career with the Spurs.

Tony Parker is headlining the final 12-man French Eurobasket team.

France, the first team to announce its final 12-man squad, will also have Nando De Colo back on the squad. Other players include Nicolas Batum, Alexis Ajinca, Boris Diaw, Rudy Gobert and Evan Fournier.

Tony Parker had 16 points and seven assists during France's easy 78-65 win over Serbia on Friday.

Teammate Boris Diaw added nine points as France gets ready for Eurobasket. With all of the concern surrounding players getting hurt in international competition, Parker might have some minutes restrictions. He should be set for a consistent role at point guard in the 2015-16 season, but expect the Spurs to rest the oft-injured stud more often.

Tony Parker said he's excited about San Antonio's reloaded roster.

With the additions of LaMarcus Aldridge and David West, the Spurs have propped open their championship window for at least another season and that fact is not lost on Parker. "It’s been an unbelievable summer for us," Parker said. "LaMarcus is going to help us a lot. I’m so happy that Manu and Timmy are back. And so we’re going for a last try, a last crack at it to try to win it all." While the Spurs are loaded, they may attempt to keep Parker rested for a playoff run so fantasy owners may want to steer clear of the 33-year-old until the late-mid rounds of drafts.
Jul 30 - 1:21 PM

Tony Parker said he's "super excited" for the upcoming season.

"That’s why I can’t wait to start with the national team and make sure we take care of business, and then go to the Spurs and try to go back at it and try to get another ring," Parker said. "It’s been an unbelievable summer for us. LaMarcus is going to help us a lot. I’m so happy that Manu and Timmy are back. And so we’re going for a last try, a last crack at it to try to win it all." The Spurs are stacked and it may help keep Parker healthy. He's a risky mid-round fantasy target.
Jul 29 - 5:36 PM

Tony Parker said he plans to play 5-6 more seasons in the NBA and retire from international play after the 2016 Olympics.

Parker is 33 years old, has 14 years of experience and really hit the ground running back in 2001 with his 29.4 minutes per game in his rookie season. His minutes and production have dropped in each of his last three seasons and that trend figures to continue going forward. He'll be a risky PG2 in fantasy leagues next season.
