Tony Parker
PG, 6’2, 185lbs, 35 years old, 16 years of experience

We are pretty near to the end by this point, especially in light of the serious injury he now has. But prior to that injury, Parker’s playoff performances showed that he still had something left in the chamber. Increasingly exploitable defensively, yielding a greater share of the ball to Leonard, and not being the spot-up threat off of his presence that would be ideal, Parker can nevertheless still get it done, with vintage performances, cuts to the rim, big shots, and cliché-but-true turn-back-the-clock performances. Now that he’s hurt, though, someone will have to take the starting point guard spot for a while. And perhaps it is best that even when he is back to health, Parker backs that player up, to save those legs for yet more postseason performances.

Player Plan: One year and $15,453,126 remaining. Not the kind of player that commands salaries like that any more, but surely no one disputes that contract.
