Why Tony Parker 'had to move on' from Spurs

Tony Parker Leaves Spurs, Signs With Charlotte Hornets For 2 Years At $10mill

Veteran point guard Tony Parker made the surprising decision on Friday to leave the San Antonio Spurs after 17 seasons to sign with the Charlotte Hornets on a two-year, $10 million deal.

"It's hard to put into words how important Tony Parker has been to the Spurs franchise over the past two decades", Popovich said. The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears added that Parker considered offers from the Spurs and the Denver Nuggets before choosing the Hornets.

Leonard demanded a trade out of San Antonio after he was limited to just nine games in 2017-18 because of an injured right quad.

Parker, 36, was selected by the Spurs 28th overall in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft and has spent his entire professional career in San Antonio. He's been with the Spurs for four of its five National Basketball Association championships and is a six-time All-Star. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly unbelievable memories. His injury was considered more significant than Leonard's, and the team sought advice from the world's best tendon experts for Parker and Leonard.

In March, a frustrated Parker told the media that his injury was "a hundred times worse" than Leonard's.

Parker will be reunited with new head coach James Borrego, who has been an assistant with the Spurs, Pelicans and Magic since 2003.

Parker elected to utilize the Spurs' doctors, and Leonard sought treatment outside of the organization.

They speak Tony Parker's move to Charlotte, what's the deal with the Kawhi situation, how has Pop handled this year so far, and what's to come in the 2018 Spurs season.

Parker saw his starting point guard duties diminished with the arrival of Dejounte Murray. Last season saw Parker relegated to a smaller role, however, as he only started 21 of the 55 games he played. Parker wants to play at least 20 years in the National Basketball Association.
