Hornets coach James Borrego, who completed two assistant stints at the Spurs, will also attend the ceremony.

"It's getting very nostalgic," Parker said. "It will put everything in the right perspective. They begin to realize what we have achieved in this league. It will be emotional. "

Parker's fondness for his old franchise goes hand in hand with his accomplishments. The French point-keeper spent 1

7 seasons with the Spurs, including five All-Star appearances, four NBA championships and the 2007 MVP Final. Parker, Ginobili and Tim Duncan formed the core of Spurs' most successful era under Gregg Popovich, who trains the team since 1997.
