After 17 years as a member of the San Antonio Spurs, Tony Parker leaves the team and joins the Charlotte Hornets.

Per Shams Charania of Yahoo and Adrian Wojnarowski of the ESPN, the 36-year-old guard has agreed to a two-year, $10M deal with Charlotte, where he will play alongside his friend, Nicolas Batum.

Parker averaged 15.8 points and 5.7 assists with the Spurs, playing in 1.198 regular season and 226 playoff games. The French player won four NBA titles with San Antonio (2003, 2005, 2007, 2014) and was the 2007 NBA Finals MVP.

According to the ESPN, the 36-year-old guard is the third player in NBA history, after Karl Malone and Hakeem Olajuwon, that played at least 17 seasons with one team before leaving.
