Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo isn’t one to pour compliments on opposing players. He doesn’t tend to watch other teams play basketball either, unless it is to study film. However, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker grabbed his attention with the way he moved without the ball in the NBA Finals, and now Rondo is incorporating some of Parker’s game into his already stacked arsenal of weapons. “He’s a guy that usually dominates the ball like myself, but in the Finals he got off the ball a lot and he never stopped moving,” Rondo said of Parker. “A guy at that age, not that he’s old, but I think he’s 31 (Ed. Note: Parker is 32), to be able to move with the young guys says a lot.” Basketball Insiders

“The starters are still going to play a lot of minutes,” Parker said. “Nothing will change. I think what (should be changed) is to play four preseason games instead of eight, and those two weeks you can help spread the season. That would be better. Because every arrives in shape at training camp. Everybody’s in shape. Everybody’s here since the beginning of September, even the guys playing overseas, we arrive in shape. So it’s better to play four preseason games, and then that two weeks use it to spread the season. You can still keep the week for the All-Stars so we can have some vacation too. I think that would be the solution. But 44 (minutes), no, that’s not going to change anything. Except for the coaches; there would be fewer minutes for the guys off the bench.” San Antonio Express-News

Marc Stein: For those asking why Tony Parker did NOT get a no-trade clause in his new deal, it's because no-trade clauses can't be added to extensions. This is Tony Parker's third successive extension w/Spurs. Third successive time, in other words, San Antonio has kept him off open market. All six NBA players who have full no-trade clauses had to opt out and get to the open market to get them: Kobe, Duncan, Dirk, KG, Wade, Melo. Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

According to Parker, he’s had conversations with Gasol about joining the Spurs, and even if Gasol didn’t choose San Antonio, it wouldn’t be an issue amongst their friendship. “I’ve talked to Pau (Gasol) and I said I would love to play with him someday. Luckily, you have many options to play. Lakers are a great choice, but everyone wants to play with Pau, because it is one of the best players in the world, “he replied when asked about a possible interest in hiring the Catalan Spurs player. “If you choose not to play with us (Spurs), will continue to be my friend and dinner with a glass of good wine,” he added.
