Well this is going to be weird for NBA fans, but especially for San Antonio Spurs fans, four time NBA Champion Tony Parker has left the only franchise he’s ever known and signed a two year $10 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets. The 36-year-old Tony Parker has played for the Spurs for seventeen years, he is a six time All Star, and will likely go into the Hall Of Fame one day as a member of the Spurs. He joins a Charlotte roster that is in flux, they look to be entering rebuilding mode, as Kemba Walker is entering the final year of his contract while the Hornets have been attempting to trade Nic Batum quote some time. It seems that Tony Parker expects to enter the season as the primary backup to Kemba Walker, but if Kemba Walker is traded before the start of the 2018 – 2019 season, nobody would be surprised. You would think that Tony Parker would want to end his career playing for a contender, the Hornets are not expected to compete for a playoff spot even in a weak Eastern Conference, so this whole situation seems odd. It’s also going to be very strange seeing Tony Parker in the purple and teal instead of the silver and black. Bizarre.
