Spurs legend and current Charlotte Hornet Tony Parker is considering retiring from the NBA this summer. Per Eurohoops’ Antonis Stroggylakis, Parker recently said in an interview on French TV show “C’a Vous” that he’s currently split 50-50 on that decision.
“It’s 50-50. I haven’t made my decision yet. I told the club that I will give them an answer in June. I really hesitate. I have nothing to prove. I want to spend time with my family. And there’s another part of me that wants to make one last season. There will be an NBA match in France, in Paris. It will be a beautiful event.”
Parker has one year left on his contract with the Hornets. He started the season backing up All-Star Kemba Walker before falling out of the rotation, leaving him in a similar situation as he was last summer with the Spurs. Although he received an identical offer (2 years/$10 million) from the only team he knew, he chose the option that promised more playing time.
