Longtime Spur Parker to sign with Hornets

How the comments are perceived speak to how people want to see them - and with the advisors to Leonard trying to push him out of San Antonio to a larger market, this was a chance to widen the gap between Leonard the Spurs. [Hornets owner Michael Jordan], coach J.B.

Still, even though it makes sense why the Spurs have moved on, it's going to be unusual to see Parker in a uniform other than the black and white of the Spurs.

"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. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly incredible memories.

Leonard is believed to be angry with both the Spurs' diagnosis and treatment of a long-standing quadriceps injury that kept him sidelined for all but nine games last season.

With all the Kawhi Leonard drama, Parker's free agency this offseason was overshadowed.

A report earlier this week said San Antonio was interested in bringing Parker back at the right price. He returned to the court on November 27 last season after 208 days.

According to Wojnarowski, Leonard was upset with Parker's comments about Leonard's injury, where he missed most of last season coping with a quad injury.

Parker, speaking to The Undefeated today, denied he ever had a problem with Leonard saying: "We never had an argument". Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Parker "quarterbacked" a player's only meeting to implore Leonard to return to their lineup in March 2018. "When the journalist asked me if my injury was worse than Kawhi's, I said yes because it was true".

Parker saw his starting point guard duties diminished with the arrival of Dejounte Murray. "He was the face of the franchise".
