If 2to3 is run on a file with the following contents:
print ("%s" % a)

The output is:

print (("%s" % a))

Although it was already a valid call to print in python3.

Thanks for the report. Is this similar to issue10375 ? One option would be to use -p to stop transforming print related code if you don't want to transform any print statement.

$ cat /tmp/
print (1)

$ 2to3 /tmp/
--- /tmp/	(original)
+++ /tmp/	(refactored)
@@ -1 +1 @@
-print (1)

$ 2to3 -p /tmp/
