When the San Antonio Spurs tossed in Tony Parker's name before the 2011 NBA draft as a possible trade for a pick, teams became interested.

A three-time All-Star and former NBA Finals MVP, Parker is still a top 10 point guard in the league. There have been murmurs that Parker is too valuable to be traded, but Parker himself expressed some discontent with the direction the team is going in.
