Tony Parker: Spurs offered the same contract as Hornets but I didn't want to finish assistant coach

Parker: When Michael Jordan called me, my idol, I thought

Tony Parker explained his decision to leave the Spurs to join the Hornets on a two-year, $10 million contract.
Parker said that the Spurs offered him the same money as the Hornets but with a different role while he wanted to keep playing.

Per BeInSports, via News4SanAntonio, The Spurs offered me the same thing (contractually) as Charlotte, but it was more about the role. It was not a question of money. And it's important that people know this, because there are a lot of people who were "angry" at the Spurs, thinking the franchise had not offered me anything. Yes, they offered me something similar, but I did not want to finish assistant-coach. And that was the role they offered me, when I wanted to play.
And when Michael Jordan called me, my idol, I thought, let's go. For me, I feel like closing the loop, to finish my career in his club, it's something special for me because it's him that made me want to play basketball.
