Tony Parker agrees to deal with Charlotte Hornets

Tony Parker agrees to deal with Charlotte Hornets

Parker, 36, leaves the Spurs after 17 years spent in San Antonio during which he secured four National Basketball Association championships under the guidance of legendary coach Gregg Popovich.

Now 36, Parker will pen a two-year, $10 million contract with Charlotte, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

"It's hard to put into words how important Tony Parker has been to the Spurs franchise over the past two decades", head coach Gregg Popovich said in a statement.

Parker, now a member of the Charlotte Hornets, said he always wanted to play Leonard and things were spun in a way not intended, as Parker told Marc Spears of ESPN.

The Spurs were reportedly trying to bring Parker back in a mentorship role.

Parker was one of the cornerstones of the Spurs' franchise, joining guard Manu Ginobili and forward Tim Duncan to win four National Basketball Association titles since 2003.

Parker won four championships and was a six-time All-Star for the Spurs.

"From his first game in 2001 at age 19, TP has impressed and inspired us - day after day, game after game, season after season - with his passion, dedication, and desire".

Parker, who had become an unrestricted free agent this summer, called Spurs coach Gregg Popovich in the last hour to inform him of his decision to accept Charlotte's offer, a source told Wojnarowski.

Leonard and Parker both had quad injuries last offseason. And per Wojnarowski's report, that was that with Leonard and the Spurs. It's worth considering, especially knowing that it was Parker's comments that upset Leonard the most. Former Spurs assistant coach James Borrego is now coaching the Hornets. He took over the franchise and I gave up the torch of the franchise willingly.

In his final season with the Spurs, Parker played 55 games averaged 7.7 points and 3.5 assists. He was part of 137 playoff wins with Popovich, the second most by any coach and player in National Basketball Association history.
