Tony Parker is as much of a San Antonio Spurs legend as anyone who has put on that jersey, and on Nov. 11 the team will retire his No. 9, San Antonio announced Friday. It will happen in a game against Memphis.

Parker is the Spurs all-time leader in assists (6,829), is second in games played (1,198), and fourth in points (18,943).

This announcement was expected after the Spurs already put the jerseys of Tim Duncan — now a Spurs assistant coach — and Manu Ginobili in the rafters from this Spurs era.

The Spurs already have nine jerseys retired (Parker will be the 10th): Duncan (21), Ginobili (20), Bruce Bowen (12), Sean Elliott (32), George Gervin (44), Avery Johnson (6), Johnny Moore (00), David Robinson (50) and James Silas (13).
