Tony Parker leaving San Antonio for Charlotte

Share

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

Parker's departure to Charlotte, could help the Spurs, which is trying to fix their relationship with 2014 Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard.

Wojnarowski reported the Spurs wanted Parker to return, but he will play a more significant role in Charlotte under new Hornets head coach James Borrego.

After 17 seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, Tony Parker has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Charlotte Hornets.

He also missed time with a quadriceps injury and finished last season with 7.7 points, 3.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds per game in 55 games played. They need point guard depth behind Kemba Walker and Parker isn't a bad option on what is assuredly a low-money contract.

When the journalist asked me if my injury was worse than Kawhi's, I said yes because it was true. His relationship with the Spurs was reportedly rough throughout his entire rehab process. He took over the franchise, and I gave up the torch of the franchise willingly. While the four championships, six All-Star appearances and four All-NBA selections highlight his resume, the biggest joy for me has been to have the pleasure of watching TP grow up before our eyes.

He was part of 137 playoff wins with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, the second most by any coach and player in National Basketball Association history. The 36-year-old Frenchman averaged fewer than 20 minutes per game in the 2017-18 campaign.

Parker has also appeared in 17 consecutive postseasons; only Karl Malone and John Stockton's run of 19 straight playoff trips are longer.

It has been an offseason like no other for the Spurs.
