Almost time to usher in the new TP Era.

The Spurs front office is very intelligent they know that their championship window is closed due to the age and health of 2 of their 3 legged attack. They need to add youth, and if possible remain viable as a possible playoff team in the rebuild process. Their most valuable trade chip is Tony Parker. Whom happens to fit our biggest need. You give up Blake, TO or Frye, Batum, picks, Euros, and either Bayless or Rudy and Sergio.  Channing would seem to fit well with the Spurs. A young player matched with the best active mentor still playing. I would see Rudy and Sergio as guys that would fit the Spurs mold, and provide the team with a strong youthful foundation. You have a future base of youth that can provide a strong direction for the Spurs future without having to completely rehaul their roster.

As far as TP the 2nd, Tony would be a great 2nd option in clutch moments. He doesn't have to play with the ball in his hands, and automatically gives us the playoff veteran savvy we lack. Parker would also be a great teacher to help bring up GO in ways to effectively use his talents. 

I'm sure most think this is a pie in the sky post. I think with the front office of the Spurs this fits not only their needs, but they seem to view talent in the same way as KP, a gm that came up with in their system. The Blazers would end up light on the bench at the SG and PF position, but we would still have the ability to sign players to fill those positions, and Bayless could fill a 3 guard rotation covering either the point or sg. Also with the addition of Parker I would imagine the desire of quality veterans willing to come our way would be greatly increased. The fact that it hasn't been floated out there makes me feel even a little better about it. Of course I haven't heard any LBJ rumors either, but my homering has it's bounds.
