  • Gregg Popovich and Tony Parker

"All of us in the Spurs organization will miss having Tony in our program and wish him and his family the best as he continues his remarkable career in Charlotte", Popovich said.

After 17 seasons with the franchise, Tony Parker's time with the San Antonio Spurs came to an end this week after he signed a two-year, $10-million contract with the Charlotte Hornets. San Antonio drafted Parker with the 28th overall pick in the 2001 NBA Draft. He said it was a tough and emotional decision, while adding, "I will always love San Antonio". The six-time All-Star is the No. 4 all-time scorer in Spurs history and the franchise's career assists leader.

In March, a frustrated Parker told the media that his injury was "a hundred times worse" than Leonard's. Duncan has retired, Parker is now gone and Ginobili's status for next season is unknown. But I'm excited to play for my idol in M.J.

"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. He also averaged a career-low 19.5 minutes per bout in 55 games. Those comments were Leonard's "last straw" with the Spurs, according to a recent report from ESPN.

There was interest in San Antonio to bring him back, but regrettably only in a reduced role. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly unbelievable memories.

With all the Kawhi Leonard drama, Parker's free agency this offseason was overshadowed. "We never had an argument", Parker told The Undefeated.

Parker ruptured his left quadriceps tendon in the 2016-17 Western Conference Final and now says he is close to 100 percent healed.
