Tony Parker said that he wants to play for five more years in San Antonio.

"I want to end my Spurs career on a high note. I want to play five more years," Parker said. Parker could very well play until he's 39 years old, but he's already a non-option in standard leagues.

Tony Parker confirmed Wednesday will be his last international game.

He said he's not going to change his mind on the subject. Parker is part of the reason French basketball became one of the best in the world. He is still just 34, but Parker has 15 years of NBA experience to go with his international competition.

Tony Parker scored a team-high 14 points during a 92-67 loss to Spain on Monday, adding one rebound, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

This might be it for international competition from one of the best Europeans ever. Parker will still be involved in some international management as an owner for the reigning champs of the French Pro A League. He'll be ready to go for next season for the Spurs with about 24 minutes per game. He's not a fantasy option in most leagues.

Tony Parker (toe) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Spain, sending Sergio Rodriguez back to the bench.

Parker was withheld from France's previous game with a minor toe injury, but the injury was never believed to be serious and his return to action today is a good indication that he's perfectly fine. Parker's numbers have been trending in the wrong direction for the past three years, and that downward trend will more than likely continue as he enters his age-34 season.

Tony Parker (toe) will not take the court Sunday vs. Team USA.

Parker injured his toe during France's win over Venezuela on Friday, although the injury is not considered to be serious and Parker is expected to return to action for the quarterfinals. That being said, this is just a reminder to those in standard leagues that at 34 years old, Parker is a bit more fragile now and he won't be worth targeting on draft day as he's sure to pick up his fair share of DNP-OLDs this upcoming season.
Aug 14 - 2:32 PM

Tony Parker scored 14 points during an easy 96-56 win over Venezuela on Friday, adding three assists, two steals and no turnovers.

France finally looked like France, but it helped to play against one of the worst teams. Even with the USA on the horizon, this Friday win basically locks France into the quarterfinal round. The French are playing a lot better, but they don't have much of a chance against Carmelo Anthony and company.
Aug 12 - 11:05 PM

Tony Parker came through in the clutch during a 76-75 win over Serbia on Wednesday, finishing with six points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and three turnovers in 21 minutes.

With France down 75-74, Parker hit a clutch fadeaway jumper with 31 seconds left to give the French the lead for good (video in link below). The future Hall of Famer was left on the bench longer than expected, but the plan worked with Parker having extra energy down the stretch. The French team has looked out of it at times, but if they keep up their consistency they could medal in Rio.
Aug 10 - 3:28 PM

Tony Parker scored 14 points during an 88-60 win over China on Monday, adding two rebounds, eight assists, two 3-pointers and three turnovers in 26 minutes.

The French were horrible on Saturday and had another rough start today, but they got it going in the second half. They were a little sloppy in this game with 23 turnovers, but an efficient 71.4 true shooting percentage helped them today. When the NBA season starts, Parker might see his playing time drop for the fourth consecutive season. He'll likely be in the mid-20s for 2016-17.
Aug 8 - 11:39 PM

Tony Parker scored 18 points against Australia during an 87-66 loss on Saturday, adding two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He was dreadful in three of the four quarters with a 16-point quarter coming in the second. Parker not having Kawhi Leonard on the perimeter to help out may have hurt his team's defense today, but France simply isn't this bad. Parker won't be a coveted fantasy target next year.
Aug 6 - 3:14 PM

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.

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.
Jun 16 - 5:21 PM

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.
