There is a new and improved rumor involving Tony Parker. This one has him going to the Pacers for Troy Murphy, Brandon Rush, and the Number 10 overall pick in the NBA Draft.
I am not sure what to think of this one just yet. On the one hand, I do not want to see the Spurs part with Tony. I think George Hill is great, but I am not 100% convinced he can replace Tony. Plus I hate the Pacers so there’s that. Then again, Troy Murphy is a great rebounder and can shoot the three – he is basically a one man replacement for Antonio McDyess and Matt Bonner. Brandon Rush is decent player with upside, but I am not sure where (or if) he fits into the Spurs system. Then we come to the #10 overall pick. That’s the most interesting piece of this puzzle. Would they go after Ed Davis, Ekpe Udoh, Cole Aldrich? Try and trade up some more for a shot at someone like DeMarcus Cousins? Who knows? I am somewhat intrigued by this scenario tho, and I trust Popovich and Buford to do what’s in the best interest of the team and winning another championship. We’ll just have to wait and see whow much truth there is to this one.
