Former San Antonio Spurs and current Charlotte Hornets point guard Tony Parker is "50-50" on whether to retire this offseason.
The Spurs legend discussed his future with the French TV show "C'a Vous," according to a report from Eurohoops.net.
“It’s 50-50. I haven’t made my decision yet," Parker said in his interview. "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.”
He has one more year remaining on his contract with the Hornets.
Parker joined the Spurs in 2001 and was a member of the Silver & Black for the first 17 seasons of his NBA career. Parker was a member of the Spurs 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014 championship teams and was named the Finals MVP during the 2007 championship run.
Parker was last at the AT&T Center in March to celebrate his former teammate Manu Ginobili's retirement. If Parker were to retire, chances are his number 9 Spurs jersey would be added to the rafters next to Ginobili's and Tim Duncan's as a constant reminder of the Big 3 era in San Antonio.
