Kawhi Leonard trade: Key Spurs player’s departure could have HUGE consequences

For 17 seasons, Tony Parker was a key member of the San Antonio Spurs and, over the course of his career, the French guard amassed four NBA titles, six All-Star appearances, four All-NBA nods and the 2007 NBA Finals MVP. League sources confirmed Friday that Parker, 36, is moving on to Charlotte after securing a two-year, $10 million deal.

Via Sam Amick of USA Today, Gregg Popovich spoke on Parker's departure from San Antonio.

The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears added that Parker considered offers from the Spurs and the Denver Nuggets before choosing the Hornets. In addition, Parker's public complaints about Leonard's injury were reportedly the last straw for Leonard, who now wants out of San Antonio. Parker has spent the last 17 seasons with the Spurs winning four NBA Championships and being named to six All-Star teams during that run. Parker will have a piece of his time in San Antonio with him as he sets up camp in Charlotte.

But his absence from the Spurs' roster could have an impact on the future of disgruntled superstar Kawhi Leonard, who informed San Antonio executives of his desire to be traded last month.

Kompany evaded a question on how he would deal with any Neymar's antics, but said: "Honestly, I don't care". "We will need power". Such a record is nothing new for Brazil, with their defence having always been one of their keys to success at World Cups.

"I have no problem with Kawhi Leonard", Parker said to ESPN. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly fantastic memories. "When the journalist asked me if my injury was worse than Kawhi's, I said yes because it was true".

"The biggest joy for me has been to have the pleasure of watching TP grow up before our eyes", Popovich said.

Wojnarowski reported the Spurs wanted Parker to return, but he will play a more significant role in Charlotte under new Hornets head coach James Borrego. "All of us in the Spurs organization will miss having Tony in our program and wish him and his family the best as he continues his remarkable career in Charlotte".
