Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen countless rumors surfacing about the possibility of Spurs point guard Tony Parker being interested in being traded to the Knicks this summer. Now, Parker has publicly denied these reports, but there have been multiple reports surfacing that counter his claims.
When Isola first reported Parker might have interest in New York, I didn’t take it for much, but with these new reports coming from multiple sources that spoke with newsday perhaps there is some truth to Parker’s New York interest.
There’s just one problem; we have no trading pieces. I really have no earthly idea how we could for Parker without giving up more picks and Eddy Curry’s expiring. Parker would be an incredible addition to this squad and if Walsh somehow finds a way to land Parker it could really set the tone for the rest of the Knicks summer.
We desperately need a solid PG to play within this system and Parker fills that void. I’m just not so sure the Spurs are sold enough on Hill that they’d be willing to move a former Finals MVP for a young, inexperienced George Hill. Hill is a solid player, but I really don’t see his ceiling ever reaching Parker’s.
If Walsh lands Parker, that covers a major need for this team and really puts us in a good position for this summer.
Get it done Donnie.
