Tony Parker's jersey to be retired by Spurs this November

Parker will be the first Frenchman to have his jersey retired by an NBA team.

SAN ANTONIO — UPDATE: The Spurs have announced time change for their November 11 game against the Memphis Grizzlies; tipoff has been moved up to 6:30 p.m. and Tony Parker's jersey will be retired following the game.

Original story from August 16:

The San Antonio Spurs have confirmed a date for Tony Parker's inevitable jersey retirement ceremony.

The news was first reported by French newspaper Le Parisien, who stated the Spurs will honor Parker on November 11. That night, the Spurs will host the Memphis Grizzlies 

Parker played 17 seasons with the Silver & Black and won 4 NBA championships with the team, including a 2007 run in which he was awarded Finals MVP.  

Parker is the last of the Spurs' "Big Three" to retire; his jersey will join those of his longtime teammates, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili.
