Tony Parker, Dwight Howard pick new spots, Melo may be next

But while Leonard's departure is merely a rumor at this point, the Spurs did lose a San Antonio legend Friday. In short, the 36-year-old's importance to the Spurs franchise is both obvious and noteworthy, especially on the heels of the news that Parker will be spending the next stage of his career with the Charlotte Hornets.

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

Parker, the 2007 NBA Finals MVP, is expected to sign a two-year deal with the Hornets and informed the Spurs of his decision, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

LAS VEGAS Tony Parker went to San Antonio as a teenager almost two decades ago, quickly became part of the Spurs' legendary Big Three and celebrated four championships while wearing silver and black.

Howard started today on Charlotte's roster, then was traded to Brooklyn - a deal agreed to days ago, but one that couldn't be completed until today when the league's offseason moratorium on player movement ended.

Belgium coach Martinez: Those who work with Fellaini appreciate him
The teams have progressed through different means but each arrive with confidence after rousing wins in their last starts. It was hardly such smooth sailing for the Belgians, who suffered a huge scare in their last-gasp 3-2 win over Japan.

Last season, Parker played 55 games for the Spurs and put up averages of 7.7 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game while shooting 45.9 percent from the field, primarily as a backup to Dejounte Murray.

On the move: Tony Parker. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly incredible memories. Parker wants to play at least 20 years in the National Basketball Association.

When the journalist asked me if my injury was worse than Kawhi's, I said yes because it was true.

Parker said in March he had suffered a similar injury to Leonard's but his was "100 times worse". Popovich and Spurs legend Tim Duncan combined for 157 playoff wins. However, he has a close friend on the Hornets in fellow Frenchman Nic Batum.

The Denver Nuggets were also reportedly interested in Parker.
