After 17 years, Tony Parker decided to leave the San Antonio Spurs and join the Charlotte Hornets, who were really interested in signing him.
“The Spurs made me an offer, but it was only for a year and with a role a little wobbly. I wanted to have a real challenge. I feel like the Hornets wanted me more,” explained Parker, regarding his decision to leave San Antonio.
Although the team made him a new offer, the 36-year-old guard thought it would be more beneficial to him to sign with Charlotte, where he will be Kemba Walker’s backup.
