Spurs to bring Livio Jean-Charles in for 2016-17

The 28th pick of the 2013 draft is leaving France and heading to the River City. Davis Bertans isn't the only draft-and-stash player that will get his chance to earn a meaningful roster spot for the Spurs next season. Livio Jean-Charles -- who last played for the Tony Parker-owned French team  ASVEL -- is set to join the Spurs on unknown contract terms. With Jean-Charles, Davis Bertans and 29th pick of the 2016 NBA draft, Dejounte Murray, there will likely be three NBA rookies on the San Antonio roster next season. That's half as many rookies as the Spurs have played over the past four...

Mike Conley is interested in joining the Spurs

No offense to Tony Parker, Patty Mills, Ray McCallum and Andre Miller, but the Spurs' point guards were not at the top of the league last year. In the series against OKC, Tony Parker couldn't defend Russell Westbrook, when he needed to, and usually had to hide on Andre Roberson. Flash forward to Free Agency. Mike Conley is one of the premier point guards on the market, and believe it or not, he plays excellent defense. (And offense as well.) According to reports Mike Conley is interested in signing for either the Mavericks or the Spurs. No offense to Tony Parker, Patty Mills, Ray McCallum...

Tony Parker's French basketball club wins league championship

The Wee Frenchman once again finds himself celebrating a championship in June. How does Tony Parker beat the offseason blues? By winning a championship, of course! Parker's French A Pro League club ASVEL Basket, of whom Parker is the majority owner and president, captured the Pro A championship by beating French club Strasbourg in a five-game series. This was ASVEL's 18th French league championship, and their first since the 2008-2009 season.

The Spurs need shooting and depth this offseason, not a point guard upgrade

Finding Tony Parker's heir would be great but the Spurs should focus on more pressing needs this summer instead of hunting for an upgrade at a position they already have well-manned. It's hard to blame anyone who feels a little bit disappointed about the Spurs' 2015/16 season. Every time a 67-win team fails to at least reach the conference finals it means something went wrong. It wasn't injuries this time, so instrospection is necessary. Was San Antonio really as good at its record said? The reality is the Spurs were ahead of schedule. They had to give up a lot of depth to acquire LaMarcus...

Tony Parker, Corey Maggette, and Parker's father hang out in France

Parker, who is the President of ASVEL Villeurbanne (in Lyon, France), hung out with other co-investor and friend Corey Maggette. In 2014, Tony Parker was named President of the the ASVEL Basket Professional basketball team located in Lyon, France. Other NBA players coming on board as investors included Corey Maggette and former Spur Michael Finley.

Spurs reportedly looking to move up in the 2016 NBA Draft

The Silver and Black could be trying to flip their 29th overall pick into something more. The San Antonio Spurs are no stranger to late first round picks and have discovered key contributors outside the lottery on numerous occasions with players like Tony Parker, George Hill, Cory Joseph, and, more recently, Kyle Anderson. But rather than hoping to strike lightning again with the 29th pick - the only pick for the Spurs in the 2016 Draft - the Spurs apparently have designs on acquiring a higher selection. The San Antonio Spurs have explored moving up in the first round of the draft, per...

San Antonio Spurs' players pay homage to the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali

The Spurs showed their deep appreciation for the GOAT after he passed. On Friday, Muhammad Ali passed away, surrounded by friends and family. Rightfully considered the greatest athlete of all time -- both for his actions in the ring and in the real world -- Ali was a giant of the twentieth century. Yesterday, many of the San Antonio Spurs' players took to twitter to express their love and admiration for the GOAT. Tony Parker chimed in: RIP Muhammad Ali !
