SAN ANTONIO -- The annual NBA draft is just hours away, and the trade rumors continue to fly.
The biggest name out of Spurs camp being shopped is point guard Tony Parker. The 10-year veteran told reporters he does not want to leave the Spurs.
Yahoo Sports has been reporting that the Spurs have had talks with Toronto and Sacramento about trading Parker for a Top-10 lottery pick. The latest reports claim the Spurs are only interested in trading if they can also unload Richard Jefferson and his 3-year, $30 million contract. But Thursday morning, the Spurs deny that report.
General Manager R.C. Buford sent the following text message to the Express-News:
"We're not shopping anyone. We've received calls on a lot of our guys, and We've answered the phone."
Another question is whether or not fellow guard George Hill will stay a spur. Several reports say the Spurs have offered Hill up for either the 10th, 11th, or 12th pick in the draft.
Right now, the Spurs have two picks: the 29th in Round 1, and the 59th in Round 2. Cleveland has the number 1 pick.
