Tony Parker says he has no problem with Kawhi Leonard

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

After spending 16 years together as teammates with the San Antonio Spurs, Manu Ginobili has bid adieu to Tony Parker. He joins fellow France native Nicolas Batum with the Hornets.

Parker will be reunited with new head coach James Borrego, who has been an assistant with the Spurs, Pelicans and Magic since 2003.

Leonard is eligible to sign a five-year $219m supermax contract extension in San Antonio this summer and is still said to have a good relationship with coach Popovich.

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. Last season saw Parker relegated to a smaller role, however, as he only started 21 of the 55 games he played.

CBR .com - which seems to have been the first news site to report the discovery - described it as an "epic mistake". The movie " Khali the Killer " has a runtime of nearly hour and a half, and was originally released on DVD in 2017.

In March, a frustrated Parker told the media that his injury was "a hundred times worse" than Leonard's.

Unless Parker returns in the future, he would fall just two seasons short of Tim Duncan's Spurs record of 19 seasons with the team. While the four championships, six All-Star appearances and four All-NBA selections highlight his resume, the biggest joy for me has been to have the pleasure of watching TP grow up before our eyes.

Anthony has likely played his last game for the Oklahoma City Thunder - with the sides having mutually decided that he will not be on the team next season. He has said he will not accept a reserve role, and by parting with him - somehow - the Thunder could save more than $90 million in luxury tax payments.

With all the Kawhi Leonard drama, Parker's free agency this offseason was overshadowed. The 36-year-old will now be joining the Charlotte Hornets.

"This is something that we mutually want", Marks said. "It's going to be very interesting this year and I look forward to a lot of exciting basketball".
