NBA News: Tony Parker Signs Three-Year Max Extension

Tony Parker has long been one of the top point guards in the league. With his contract ending after the 2015 season, Parker was set to be an unrestricted free agent next summer. That is no longer the case.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Tony Parker has agreed to a three-year contract extension with the San Antonio Spurs:

Wojnarowski would specify that the exact amount is $43.3 million, the maximum amount Parker could sign an extension for.

The chances of Parker leaving San Antonio were slim, but possible. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili’s contract expire after next season, and both could retire. If both Duncan and Ginobili were gone, there is no telling what Parker may have done, and a maximum offer could have lured him away from the Spurs.

Had he become a free agent, the Lakers could have been in hot pursuit of the four-time champion. Jeremy Lin and Steve Nash are both free agents after the season and Parker looks to have many more good years in front of him.

With Parker no longer a possibility, Rajon Rondo becomes the unquestioned top point guard available in next year’s free agent class. Goran Dragic could be an unrestricted free agent if he opts-out of his contract, while young players such as Kemba Walker, Reggie Jackson, and Ricky Rubio will all be restricted free agents.

    He deserves it. Love great players that stays with there team no matter what.. Through thick and thin. Most nba stars are looking for a championship or money. Hey That doesnt mean I dont like superstars coming to us lol.

    If you guys think Tony Parker will play anywhere other than San Antonio, then you lack common sense.

    If Michael Beasley wants to make serious money and a impact in the NBA he should sign with the Lakers.Reasons are obvious he will get major playing time and get a chance to start at small forward.He will also get shot attempts in the Byron Scott Princeton Offense.Jeremy Lin will get him the ball and he will get a chance to be on national TV all the time plus he will get a fair chance from the Lakers to redeem himself and prove he is not a lottery bust.

    Before Jordan Hill got traded to the Lakers he was rotting on the Rockets bench and about to be out of the league and suddenly the Lakers got him in a trade and started using him as a rotation player and now he is a top rebounder and a fan favorite energy player making $9,000,000 per year.

    Jodie Meeks was just a average bench player making the veteran minimum and he signed with the Lakers and now averages almost 16 PPG per game and is known as a starter and one of the best shooters in the NBA making $6,000,000 per year with Detroit.Nick Young was just a guy looking for a NBA job and now he is a major fan favorite and on a long term deal with the Lakers making over $20,000,000 in total of the entire deal.

    Trevor Ariza came into LA as a bench player that never got a chance in Orlando and he was about to be out of the NBA if he stayed in Orlando but the Lakers got him and he blossomed into a serious very good player winning a championship with the Lakers and making over $50,000,000 dollars afterwards.The Lakers resurrect careers of players that have talent and need a platform and chance to prove they are worth the money and belong in the NBA.The Lakers have turned around lots of careers.Beasley needs to sign with the Lakers to earn back his respect and make much better money in the NBA.

    • Badazztj12

      He not a bust. He just has problems. Get him on the right track then sky is limit for him.

    • ra

      agree. LA is the “perfect” place for Beasley. We will ALL benefit if he signs with the Lakers.

      • Joseph Apohen

        As long as he’s got his head screwed on correctly. If not Kobe will correct it. He’s played with several ball clubs and he’s been bounced around due I believe to attitude problem. It will not be a problem here with Kobe. He just might turn around and do well. I don’t think there are too many teams that would take a chance on him. We could probably sign him for almost nothing. Might be worth a gamble. He’ll improve his defense with Byron Scott.

  • Mr.Barboza

    I love Tony Parker and all, but…is this connected in anyway to the Lakers, I tought this was a Lakers news and rumors page, wasn’t it?

    • ra

      well, it demonstrates loyalty to a team, or loyalty in general. Lakers are loyal to Kobe, and Steve Nash (for now). They let DH do what he wanted – they were loyal to him, and he screwed the Lakers (although, in the long run, he helped). Lakers demonstrate loyalty, and so they will do well.

      Just like Tony Parker. Loyal to the Spurs.

      • Paytc

        ra,
        Not only that but look how well Parker played thru injuries and all to help win the title. Parker is still a bad man. I though CP3 and Damian Lillard would get the best of him in the playoffs, but that was not the case. Parker and Kobe also won playing on one team not hoping around to find an all-star lineup like todays player.

        Kobe got mad love in my book for being the one and most likely only player to play at a high level for one team for 20 years. That is loyalty that will never be topped. Go Kobe ! Go Lakers !

        • Paytc

          correction “Hopping “

      • Mr.Barboza

        Like I said before, I like Tony Parker a lot, he’s a great player and more important he’s loyal, something that’s very hard to find now days, but this site is made for Laker Fans, when you enter this site you’re supposed to see news and rumors about the Lakers, if I wanted to know what’s happening in the NBA right now I would just go to the NBA’s official site, don’t you think?

    • Joseph Apohen

      Once in a while we go off tangent here. Glad you brought it up. Parker was brought it up because there could have been a Laker signing had he not sign with the Spurs.

  • vdogg

    F him. who cares? i come here for laker news.

    Peter Vecsey: “I think if [Kevin] Durant goes anywhere, he goes to the Lakers.”Written by Edward Santiago

    • Joseph Apohen

      Kevin Durant wants to go home to Texas. They have three teams he can choose from.

  • Ray-Marcus

    OK…why is this post on a Laker site?

  • Kareem

    I urge The Lakers to sign Michael Beasley,he has too much talent sign him.

  • Avery

    Lakers are in flux and Spurs are champs.Tony Parker is a HOF player.Great signing.

  • Joseph Apohen

    The article mentioned that Rajon Rondo is the only good one available after Parker signed with the Spurs. I cannot stand that Rondo especially being a Celtics. Bring back Smush Parker if we have to, but not that temperamental Rondo. I understand he did not get along with anyone of his teammates in Boston. He could not even get along with himself!

    • vdogg

      agreed. would never want to see rondo in a laker uniform.

  • Rita Long

    Thanks Spurs for beating Heat 4-1 in the Finals by 15 and 20 Points. Awesome Job.
