San Antonio Spurs’ All-Star Tony Parker has decided to play in France if the NBA Lockout stretches into the season. Parker is said to be taking a huge pay cut to play overseas.

ASVEL, which is based in Villeurbanne, in southern France will pay Parker a whopping $1,995 per month during the period he plays with them. This is a significant pay cut for Parker as he made $13,500,000 last season with the Spurs.

Spurs fans are used to hearing about Parker leaving the team as he has been in trade rumors for several seasons now.  Parker would join teammate DeJuan Blair in playing overseas. Blair agreed to play with a Russian team early last month.
