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

League sources confirmed Friday that Parker, 36, is moving on to Charlotte after securing a two-year, $10 million deal.
Parker will have a piece of his time in San Antonio with him as he sets up camp in Charlotte. Former Spurs assistant coach James Borrego is now coaching the Hornets.
The veteran point guard was drafted by the Spurs with the 28th pick in 2001. He's been with the Spurs for four of its five NBA championships and is a six-time All-Star.
