    Tony Parker to Hornets for $10 million/2 years

    Wow. Seems like Spurs could have offered him that. This is negative for the Spurs. Players leaving. You have a top five player in your history wanting to leave for $5 million. What's the deal?

    You are reading waaaay too much into it man.

    The Spurs have younger guys in their backcourt who they are trying to develop, which obviously means less time for TP. The Spurs wanted him back and probably could have given him that, but TP wanted a more significant role, which according to Woj, he'll get backing up Kemba.

    It's nowhere near a negative for them, it's just a matter of opportunity for TP and him wanting to play more. He'll have former Spurs assistant James Borrego and obviously his close friendship with Batum.

    yep.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I always thought TP was done. I don't know what more he can do. Sucks to see him leave Spurs because he wants to still contribute more on a team. Should've just retired with Manu.

    TP was coming off the ruptured quad. I mean he looked pretty good prior to that injury in last years playoffs. We'll see what he has left. I think he's got a little something left as a backup. He'll be good for Charlotte.

    Maybe Manu retires or gives it 1 more year so Pop doesn't lose both of them in 1 summer.

    Very savy move by The Spurs. Any chance of keeping Kawhi involved letting Parker walk. I would say their chances which still aren't great just went up to keep Kawhi
