Maccabi Tel Aviv officials have already opened talks with Parker over the possibility of his possible return to Tel Aviv.

However, sources say the forward is unlikely to make a comeback at the Nokia Stadium because of his commitment to the Toronto Raptors franchise.

I think next year he might go there seeing how he is getting old. Although I wouldn't mind him being our back-up

He won't be back next season! That's why he'll be traded within a few months imo.

regardless of his struggles with us so far into the season, a vet team would covet a player like parker. for that, i really doubt he'll be heading back to israel when he could potentially have a shot at the championship in the next couple of seasons. honestly, he'd look really good on a team like the spurs or lakers.

With the way that he's playing I'm not sad at all to see him leave after this season.

Well I know Parker usually tears it up near the end of the season but I'm just saying that his play has been less than stellar on both ends of the court lately. He really needs to step it up especially since we don't have depth off the bench to rely on anymore.

If opportunity presents itself to sign Parker for roughly same money for 2-3 years, would you take it?
I would
Experienced vet is what any team needs, and he is quite an important piece here right now. Even if he will come off the bench.

For what Raptors pays to Parker, he is contributing quite well. I would sign him for other 2 years, coming off the bench behind our promised 20ppg SG

The question is, would parker settle for the money and for a backup role? its no only maccabi whose going to want him in europe... and be sure that there will be more money offered for him then the Raptors can afford....
