A few months ago, we reported that Spurs favorite Tony Parker is open to not finishing his career in San Antonio. Now, Parker's agents are shopping for deals to see if any other teams want to snatch up the veteran point guard.

According to a report from ESPN (which has been a large source of the Kawhi Leonard/Spurs drama), Parker's camp is looking for the "right deal" while the Spurs are hoping to bring him back for another year, primarily as a mentor. This past season, Parker, who was recovering from a quadriceps injury, was removed as starting point guard and replaced by the young Dejounte Murray.
The Charlotte Hornets and Denver Nuggets are reportedly eyeing Parker, who is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Retirement is definitely off the table, with Parker previously saying that he'd like to play another three seasons in order to have a 20-year career.
