The Charlotte Hornets have signed Tony Parker to a two-year, $10-million contract, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

This puts an end to Parker's 17-year stint with the San Antonio Spurs, where the Frenchman was a four-time NBA champion, 2007 Finals MVP, four-time All-NBA selection, and six-time All-Star.

Per Wojnarowski, Parker called Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich shortly after he made his final decision to update him on his intentions. The Spurs were reportedly interested in re-signing Parker.

Parker will join fellow Frenchman Nicolas Batum in Charlotte and will likely take a key reserve role behind All-Star Kemba Walker.

The 36-year-old point guard logged career lows in games played (55), starts (21), and minutes per game (19.5), but still averaged 7.7 points, 3.5 assists, and 1.7 rebounds per appearance in 2017-18.
