  • Tony Parker agrees to deal with Hornets, reports say

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker shoots between Memphis Grizzlies forward Myke Henry and guard Ben McLemore during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Memphis, Tenn., in January.

Tony Parker has signed with the Charlotte Hornets, leaving the San Antonio Spurs after 17 seasons.

The 35-year old point guard, who won four National Basketball Association titles with the Spurs, is expected to backup Kemba Walker, who is entering his final year of his contract.

Musk tweeted the announcement after another Twitter user pleaded for him to help the 12 boys and their coach, who have been underground for nearly two weeks.

Perhaps Parker's presence away from the team could be enough to persuade Kawhi Leonard to play another season for the Spurs. "The fact Aldridge remains a Spur at all - after he was upset enough last summer to ask for a trade - lends credence to the argument that it is always too early to judge these things". Duncan has retired, Parker is now gone and Ginobili's status for next season is unknown. Those comments were Leonard's "last straw" with the Spurs, according to a recent report from ESPN.

Parker was named NBA Finals MVP in 2007 when San Antonio defeated Cleveland.

With that in mind, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich penned a heartfelt tribute to Parker, which the Spurs presented on Friday afternoon. During his career, the six-time All-Star averaged 15.8 points and 5.7 assists.

Wade , the 1973 case that affirmed a woman's right to abortion, and would weaken President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law. Similarly, Justice Neil Gorsuch , who Trump nominated to the Court a year ago , is widely seen as a pro-life conservative.

With all the Kawhi Leonard drama, Parker's free agency this offseason was overshadowed. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly incredible memories.

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

"Tough communicating it all to Pop", Parker told The Undefeated.

Arsene Wenger's prediction about Jordan Pickford backfires after England beat Colombia
If there was ever a time to justify his selection ahead of Jack Butland, it was against Colombia and the 24-year-old delivered. The trio is blessed with raw pace and natural finishing abilities which can put real pressure on the best of defences.

"I said yes because it was true". It's very sad that the media took one quote and made it sound like I didn't want to play with him.
